As the region’s leading business support agency our ethos is, and has always been, that business is done together.
There has never been a more important time for businesses to connect with political influencers, decision makers and leaders and our series of virtual events with high profile figures, will enable our Chamber members to do just that.
We are bringing together our members to hear the perspectives and observations of our influential guests as we operate through the COVID-19 emergency and begin to explore ‘what next’ for our businesses, various sectors and the Black Country economy as a whole.
Join us in conversation as we explore Inclusive Leadership and how COVID-19 has impacted the inclusivity agenda across sectors and the business community.
