"Wolverhampton Grand Theatre became a member of The Platinum Group Service Sector in July 2016 and have found the interaction key, in making links with the local Business Community. The meetings and training have all contributed to the theatre’s corporate strategy and we have seen a significant increase in Business Membership and Corporate bookings. The support from Gail Arnold and her team has also been vital in making connections with other likeminded businesses."

"We had a very pleasant and informative meeting with Gail Arnold from the Black Country Chamber of Commerce about joining The Platinum Service Sector. After a quick discussion regarding the pros, cons and costs, we decided that as a business we couldn't afford not to be in it! In particular, we have enjoyed the integration of companies sharing knowledge on various issues and factors. It can be a lonely life at the top and our MD, Paul, has really enjoyed the experiences of the ‘peer-to-peer ‘ group sessions. We have met really lovely Black Country professionals, specifically from the Chamber, with both Gail and Jayne being very approachable and helpful. They are interested in your business needs and toilor their support to those particular needs. The Platinum Group definitely lives up to our expectations, and we have no doubt that it will play a big part in our future growth and success to become the premier commercial cleaning company for the Black Country."
