Member testimonials

  • “I joined the Chamber in 2015 and never looked back. At the time, it was important for me to grow my network and as I developed as a business owner, I then saw the value in being part of “the conversation” and helping to lobby for business matters important to our region. Over time, I became more involved with the Chamber, and as an active member of the Sunderland area meetings it was a very proud moment in 2018 when I got asked to become Chair. I’ve never looked back and both myself and my team very much support the work of the Chamber.”

    Natasha McDonough, Managing Director, MMC Research & Marketing

    “Being a member of the Chamber has enabled us build valuable relationships with local businesses to help and support our careers programme. Engaging with the local business community is a vital part of student development and helps us provide real insight into working life and career choices. John and his team at The Bridges Shopping Centre have been very forth coming and have given great insight, advice and opportunities for our pupils to get involved including from visits to the centre, online tasks and speak directly with pupils…”

    Emma Osmialowski, Careers Leader, St Aidan’s Catholic Academy

    “The people we welcome & the partnerships we support are at the heart of what we do. The Chamber plays a key role in connecting people and businesses, and has helped facilitate a number of invaluable conversations for us around one of the region’s greatest assets – culture. 

    Michelle & the team have helped us by connecting businesses with the stories we share, the collections we care for, the communities we support as well as enabling us to build new partnerships with people from across the region who are passionate about the role in which art, culture & heritage plays in all our lives. Partnerships and collaborative working has never been more important and we are pleased to have the resource of the Chamber to go to in these challenging times.”
