What our members say about us
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.
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.
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.
