Meet Our Chamber: Connecting businesses

We’re all about connections. Connecting our members to business experts, other members and creating long-lasting and fruitful connections for our partners. From UK and Welsh Government, global Chambers of Commerce to local trade organisations, it’s all about who you know. If we don’t have the answer, we’ll know someone who does.


Core to our membership offering is our team of Account Directors, who day in, day out, make it their mission to create meaningful connections for our members. After all, that’s what being part of a Chamber of Commerce is all about.

Talking about the importance of driving connections within our membership base, Account Director Jonathan Cave says:

“Chambers Wales South East, South West and Mid has a wonderfully diverse membership. We really get to grips by first understanding a business and then that’s where the real work begins. Through promotion and carefully considered introductions, we find that our members benefit greatly, whether that be through direct sales made or knowledge transferred.”

Adding to this, Laurence Wood, Account Director, says:

“Businesses join a Chamber of Commerce for a variety of reasons but, making connections, trading with new markets and support with business challenges and opportunities, are among the most frequent. Chambers Wales South East, South West and Mid has a proud 177 year history of listening to businesses and delivering the support our members require.”


We’re incredibly proud of our list of partners. With experts in every sector, we’ve partnered with the very best that Wales has to offer. By becoming a trusted source of industry leading knowledge, our partners are thought leaders and influencers in their field, opening them up to a wealth of opportunities.

Sara Pardoe, Partnerships Manager, says:

“Our partners offer our members a fantastic network of expertise and experience. We meet with our members regularly to connect and support them, helping them reach their growth and development targets. We’re also very pleased to see our partners connecting with each other to develop innovative and effective collaborative relationships that are producing ground-breaking business ideas.”
