Ferndown Chamber of Commerce business breakfast
Held at Ferndown Forest Golf Club, the business breakfast meeting started at 7.30am and was attended by over 30 businesses from the town.
A new venture for the chamber, the business breakfast was a chance for companies to meet the Ferndown Chamber executive committee members, network and build new and stronger relationships in the Ferndown business community.
Guests were treated to complimentary food and drink and a talk by the chamber president Tom Clark who set out his vision for the next two years. This included his aim of having free wifi throughout the town for anyone to use. He said that Ferndown is seen as a cut through town however this shouldn’t be viewed as a negative but instead as a positive and the drive should be to get people to stop in the town as they pass through. If this can be achieved it would have a dramatic effect on the current footfall in the town.
There were also talks from chamber treasurer Tony Brown of Y-Not Finance, who sponsored the event, and a talk from chamber marketing secretary Suzanne Lovell of Meridian Air Con.
Those in attendance felt the breakfast was a great idea and they are looking forward to the next instalment. The chamber intend to hold more business breakfasts throughout the year with a view to making them a regular fixture in the business calendar.
