What our members say about us

We made the decision to upgrade our membership from gold to platinum July 2020 and it’s not a decision we have once regretted. Our journey as a chamber member is much longer but in reflection of nearly 3 years involvement with The Platinum Group specifically, we recognise the move to the group was pivotal for us as a business.

The relationship we have with Gail Arnold is second to none, she has become an extension of the team here at MET and that’s because she really understands our values, culture, and business goals. The wider chamber team are also a fantastic support network, and our membership allows us access to an endless amount of tools allowing us to grow our business, increase our knowledge and share best practice with fellow members.

IPU Group have been a member of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Platinum Group for around 3 years now and have found it to be a great source of information for our business.

There is a huge amount of support available through peer-to-peer groups, general development programmes covering everything from Sales & Marketing to HR, best practice sharing and of course many networking events. One of the huge benefits is having a main point of contact, which for us is Gail Arnold. Essentially Gail will take any question, issue or enquiry and deal with it personally so you can be assured of a speedy response.

I would liken The Platinum Group to an extension of our own business, always on hand to assist and support our business in everything we do.

We are incredibly proud to have a very long-standing association with the Chamber.

The Black Country has a unique position at the heart of the Midland Engine, and as such, has some specific needs. Over the past five decades – and never more so than in recent years – we have seen the economy, the business world, and technology change more than anyone probably ever thought possible.

 Through all of these changes, the Chamber has adapted to create opportunities and services which help every business, including the Thomas Dudley Group.
