What our members say about us
Being involved with the Black Country Chamber is a membership like no other, the support we get is unrivalled.
Being part of the BCCC family gives us the benefit of networking with prospective customers and industry heads at events, it offers industry insights, news, and training courses appropriate to our business, and an overall sense of belonging to a community with the common goal and determination for supporting the Black Country.
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.
Gail Arnold is a consummate professional and incredibly well known and networked. She always puts members first and has made some useful introductions to us. At events I have attended that have been run by Gail, she always makes everyone feel welcome and ensures the event goes smoothly.
