Merton Chamber of Commerce is the most effective chamber in the UK and provides significant support across a wide range of disciplines also to the business community in Merton. Premier Membership means WSM benefit from the service the chamber provide and can also work with the chamber to assist the business communities.
DET has had a long and positive relationship with Merton Chamber, during this time we have capitalised on the high quality courses on offer, information received through newsletters and connections made at networking events. Being shrewd ‘socialist conservatives’, we recognised a great opportunity to receive a business appraisal, followed by one to one support, gain access to targeted networking events and the ability to have ‘our say’ on the MCC website throughout the year. The cost of Premier Membership was dwarfed
by the cost of acquiring those opportunities on the open market.
Being part of a local, thriving business community has delivered a multitude of benefits. In addition to the obvious networking opportunities, the ability to learn from other local companies and fellow business owners has been invaluable. Membership provides
a structured programme of events and introductions making it easy to take advantage of the commercial opportunities.
