Due to the short, sharp lockdown and the change in restrictions thereafter, we have decided to hold an online networking event for February while we reassess. We look forward to welcoming you to an in-person event in the very near future.
This event will run via Zoom and the details will be emailed to you the day before the event. Please make sure you have checked your emails, including the Spam folder, and have the Zoom app installed and tested.
This networking event is open for everyone to attend - you don't need to be a member of the Chamber to join us!
Upon entering the meeting, our host (a member of the Chamber) will introduce how the night will run. You will then be split into small breakout rooms to network. There will be 2 x 10 minute sessions of networking followed by a short discussion back at the main screen where the host will be able to answer any questions.
International Women's Day - FREE Webinar in partnership with SEBN

I don’t know about you but I don’t like conflict, I don’t even like voices that are raised. As for difficult conversations, they certainly put me out of my comfort zone. Learn to love challenging conversations and you will be one of those great workplace communicators who provide clarity, context and inspiration.
We will discuss:
Understanding my and others behaviour
Emotional intelligence and difficult conversations
It’s a topical time to be discussing change as we are living in very quickly-changing times. Some call it “global weirding” because everything: climate, politics, food, economic ecosystems, technology, artificial intelligence, and health care; seems to be changing or begging to be changed. Dynamic means the only thing constant is change.
How can we help people remain wise and kind through the tumult of uncertainty?
Change is essential, because change is what enables us to learn and grow. At any moment, we are either contributing or contaminating, resisting with idleness or choosing to accept the mission to march forth on this quest to co-create the change we are after.
