The latest from the Black Country 

Black Country Chamber of Commerce Committed to Supporting Business Growth

Black Country Chamber of Commerce are delighted to officially launch a new group in association with Vistage UK. The Chamber has been working with CEO and MD level colleagues over the past couple of years in-depth and are aware of the specific support required at that level. In an economy that is changing, with Brexit on the horizon and some uncertainties associated with the confidence in markets, it is vital for high level contacts to have a support network to talk through issues and new ideas.

The new Black Country Chamber of Commerce Vistage Group, is an exclusive network of leaders that have access to a unique environment that provides each member with individual insight, coaching, strategies and leadership skills to help them make better decisions and achieve better results for their company.

Lorna Barker at Vistage UK, commented: "Vistage aims to become the world's most trusted resource for CEOs and Key Executives by helping them become better leaders, refining their instincts, improving their judgment, expanding their perspectives, optimising their decision making and delivering better results. Vistage groups work together as private advisory boards committed to addressing the common struggles and complex challenges the members face on the path to personal and professional excellence. We look forward to working with the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, to support the region and the aspirations of local businesses."

Corin Crane, Chief Executive at the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, commented: “According to our Quarterly Economic Survey, business confidence has fallen by 7% over the last 12 months and instilling confidence will become increasingly important in ensuring that we remain competitive as a region. Development in staff is vital to the success of a business but often the highest level, such as MD or CEO, are overlooked. We think that all levels need tailored support for their role and the Vistage programme is a thought provoking and innovative way of providing that backing to local businesses. We want the Black Country to thrive and so we are committed to supporting local business to grow and prosper.”
