Each month the Chamber runs a Business Breakfast meeting, which provide businesses with the opportunity to meet for an informal breakfast with other local members, promote services and share advice and ideas.
Whilst attending her first breakfast event, Sarah Madden from Trinity Logistics Ltd met with a local company and has won some big contracts as a result.
Sarah commented: “We joined St Helens Chamber in the hope of meeting new customers and gaining potential new business and also to employ an Apprentice on the Apprentice scheme.
“At the first breakfast I attended out of around 40 businesses, one particular business was of interest to us. Both the customer and I identified that we would like to speak to each other to find out more about the other’s business.
“On arriving back to the office that same day, we started the process of working together. To date we have completed a number of jobs between us, which is absolutely amazing, we are very grateful for having the platform to meet such customers.”
Trinity Logistics is a privately owned Freight Forwarding Company, which helps move freight without the hassle. They have their own fleet of transport trucks local to the North West to help with haulage requirements. They also have an office in Shenzhen China to assist with relationships overseas, off-dock storage facilities and a warehouse for storage requirements.
The business breakfast setting provided a platform for Sarah to network with other Member businesses before work in a relaxed setting over breakfast.
Sarah added: “We are always interested in meeting new people and gaining potential business. The breakfast meetings are a simple way of doing this without the big corporate networking events. It’s good to meet with local people and local businesses.
“I find the business breakfasts to be very beneficial, each time I’ve attended I’ve spoken to people with the hopes of working together in the near future.
“As well as meeting our new customer, we also met with a lady who designs websites. She is currently designing our website to push forward our business.”
Our Business Breakfasts take place on the second Tuesday of the month.
