What our members say about us
"As Chamber Patrons, Walsall College is able to work more closely with employers to understand emerging business challenges, skills needs and industry ambitions for the future. The networking opportunities are a way for businesses to demonstrate their success stories and identify best practice. Building relationships in this way means we can enhance the education and training solutions we offer, influence local decision-making and drive positive change across the region. It also ensures that the Black Country has a strong and influential business voice at all levels."
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.
The work with the Black Country Chamber aids the Business School with many of its Strategic objectives.
Patronage has been invaluable in providing connectivity and key links to local Businesses in the region. The networking opportunities within the Business community is critical to our work as we strive to provide the future workforce for the regional economy. The ability to meet and work with local Businesses via the Chamber is essential to our success and for that of our students whilst raising the profile of the University in the community.
