“18 months ago, I began actively participating in various professional and social events hosted by the Brockville Chamber of Commerce, which has provided an excellent venue for me to network and connect with local businesses. In particular, I’ve found the breakfast meetings most valuable to meet and interact with potential clients to discuss the mutual benefits of the innovative workforce solutions that Manpower provides and how we can partner with them. As a result, it has enabled me to grow my business by nearly 20% in a relatively short period of time.”

Virginia Stenner, Branch Manager, Manpower Brockville

“I became a proud Chamber Member for exposure within my community. After Joining I recognized that there was so much more to the Chamber than advertising my small business. By joining the Chamber I not only got the exposure I was looking for but I also received awareness about so many different programs that could have such a positive impact on my Small Business. I have since been able to provide a Benefit package to my my staff through the Chamber.  It was extremely affordable and with that I am able to financially cover this fully for my staff!”

“The Brockville Chamber of Commerce has helped us expand our business through active networking events as well as via workshops.  They were instrumental in helping plan, organize, advertise(!) and co-host one of our technology events. The Brockville Chamber provided the major logistical components of the workshop on our behalf.  We could not have accomplished this event had it not been for their help.  I highly encourage all owners and their key-players in the Brockville area to join the Brockville Chamber of Commerce to help grow their businesses!”

Eric North, President and Technology Advisor, Steady Notion Ltd.

“The Brockville Chamber is definitely something to be a part of. It offers one the opportunity to benefit from many business related courses, events and advertising/sponsorship platforms to help grow your business, up-skill your team’s talents and your own.

Recently we relocated our spa to the downtown core of Brockville. During the transition Pam and Victoria offered a wealth of support and information. They were smiling faces in the crowd during our ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor, Matt Wren.

Thank you for all that you have created to support the business community with their individual missions. It is always reassuring to know that we can count on you both and the Chamber for support and inspiration.”
