The CBD Sydney Chamber of Commerce is focused on connecting, engaging and supporting SME businesses in the Sydney CBD to maximise their potential. As a local Chamber of Commerce it is focused on working with local businesses within the largest concentration of business in Australia - the Sydney CBD.
The Chamber engages with a myriad of business types including professional services firms, the law, hospitality, retail services, accounting & finance, property & property services, education, training, HR, travel & tourism, creative, digital, media & marketing services and many more.
While just over three years old, the Chamber's Executive Officer, Peter May is enthusiastic about the value it can present to businesses. "The best way to understand how we can support businesses is to talk with them, understand where we can add value and create opportunities for collaboration. And that's where we are focused while assisted by the generous support from members of our advisory council and sub-committees."
Making New Connections Counts
Networking is important to most business owners and senior business people. The Chamber also positions itself as a community that values collaboration opportunities. So, if your business is ambitious to explore opportunities for growth by leveraging and growing your network, the After 5 Networking hosted monthly is a perfect opportunity.
