Our April Networking Breakfast was held on Thursday, April 4, and hosted by Royal Canadian Legion Branch 127 Grimsby.
The volunteers at the Legion provided an excellent breakfast for everyone to enjoy, and we welcomed more than 30 early-risers for networking.
Executive Director Rebecca Shelley gave a brief overview of the Chamber’s March 26 AGM, and spoke about attending the April 3 State of the Region, hosted by the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce:
“Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending the GNCC’s State of the Region, featuring a fascinating panel discussion from regional stakeholders and, of course, the state of the region address by Regional Chair Jim Bradley. It was very interesting to note that the regional council is developing a strategic plan, focusing on sic key areas: increasing investment, planning for growth (both business and residential), affordable housing, regional transit, and investing in infrastructure. These are all, of course, very large and complex issues, but the overarching theme that Regional Chair Jim Bradley touched on, as did every one of the panel participants, was the importance of partnerships and teamwork. That dovetails nicely into why we’re here. The purpose of coming out to these events is to NETWORK, and I encourage you to do that this morning. Speak with two or three people you haven’t met before – ask about their businesses, talk about what you might have in common and ways you might collaborate. Start building those relationships and partnerships!”
Thank you for joining us for breakfast and business connections!
