On Wednesday 11th September 2013 we were very pleased to be exhibiting at the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce ‘Chamber Means Business’ annual event held at Tankersley Manor in Barnsley. This business-to-business exhibition celebrates the best of business in Barnsley & Rotherham.

With over 30 businesses and organisations from numerous different areas of the business community exhibiting, delegates were able to explore ways to develop their own operation.

It was a great opportunity to raise our business profile, generate sales and network with companies from our local area.

There were a number of workshops running throughout the day which were free to attend for delegates visiting the exhibition: -

  • Oxley & Coward Solicitors, Employment Update 2013

  • BT, Taming today’s technologies

  • SYITF, Are you missing out? Export opportunities on your doorstep

  • The Source Skills Academy, Customer service

  • Barnsley College, Apprenticeship schemes

During the morning session the Mayor and Mayoress of Rotherham, John and Kath Foden visited the exhibition followed in the afternoon by the Mayor of Barnsley, Ken Richardson escorted by the BR Chamber President Owen Gleadall.
