Fourth Business Breakfast Forum

Salena Dawson 2nd February 2011

On the 26 January 2011 the Wayland Chamber of Commerce held its fourth Business Breakfast Forum which was kindly sponsored by Shaun Jolly on behalf of St. James Place.

I have to admit I was somewhat anxious in the Chamber running a Breakfast Forum in January, as I appreciate that many businesses are extremely busy at this time of year. However, our Chamber wanted to provide an opportunity for businesses to network as January is often that time where businesses sit and review the year ahead and business leaders are proactive in seeking networking opportunities. This was shown by the attendance of businesses which had not attended previous Business Breakfast Meetings.

Coffee was kindly provided by Office Water Supplies Limited. This business is a perfect example of a Chamber member whose business is outside the Wayland area but because they conduct business within the Wayland area are eligible to be Chamber members.

All delegate members received a reusable shopping bag which gave the Chamber the opportunity to inform local business of the project it is undertaking along with Pride in Breckland and the Co Op to install pride in the community by reducing plastic bag use.

Richard Wills from Pride in Breckland also informed delegates of the Hero’s Welcome in Watton scheme and Breckland Pride Awards.

Exhibitions were held by Mike Parkinson of the Federation of Small Businesses and other delegates; including representatives from Business Link, Breckland Economic Development and Foundation East.

I again would like to thank the members of the Chamber who are volunteers for their effort to make such events a success.

The next Business Breakfast Forum will be on the 26 May 2011, the Chamber looks forward to seeing delegates from Wayland business in the future.
