Paul Brockie -Absolute Energy and Brockie renovations:
“For what you get out of it, the Chamber is cheap to join. And despite what some people think, it’s not really aimed at big business. It’s very suitable for small businesses that want to grow and need to know what is going on in the business community around them.”
Sean Thurlow – Ground Power Electrical:
“The Chamber offers great support for tradespeople. The bigger organisations are there to support the smaller business. I would certainly go to the Chamber for help as my business grows and I need advice in specific areas.”
Pete Patullo – Ubike:
“The Chamber provides an independent viewpoint. They have good public profile and they don’t hold back on important issues. They provide a crucial voice for business.”
