Dear Chamber Non Member
Yes the Rugby World Cup is now behind us and we now look forward to celebrating the Richmond Business Awards 2015 on 13th 630pm at the RFU - the booking line is open this week, so please do not delay as you could be disappointed if you leave it too long!
On behalf of the Richmond and Twickenham Times and the myself THANK YOU to: our INDEPENDENT JUDGES, all experts in their field; our SPONSORS who have been incredibly supportive of this successful local business initiative; the ENTRANTS who have kindly made the competition worthwhile and by the way the judges inform me that the standard was high; all the VIPs, the Mayor, our MP's and Paddy O'Connell for presenting the evening; and of course all the local businesses who support us and the entrants by coming along on the evening.
Our celebrations continue on 25th November at the Quins Stoop on the A316 opposite the RFU with a Chamber Breakfast hosted by the CEO and Director of Harlequins. We will enjoy hearing their views on how we did...and also the opportunities local business have with the Quins; we are really looking forward to this.
We thank The Park Hotel Teddington for hosting our International Trade Breakfast event and the Australian and UK Governments for supporting local businesses who attended, including a 14 year old who invented his product when he was only 9 years old!
Yesterday's coffee morning at St Mary's University was thoroughly engaging, as there are so many exciting changes to the strategy, which offer local businesses who attended fabulous opportunities; watch this space!
The digital masterclass by the Chamber Marketing Forum and specifically Andreas Voniatis of Artios was well attended and thoroughly thought-provoking in respect of how to maximise your web-based activity. Take a look at the upcoming learning and development programme as these workshops and masterclasses are locally-based for your convenience.
Again we salute the Richmond Council, The Rugby World Cup England 2015 Organising Committee and the MET police for having served this borough so well - as the Australian Rugby Captain and his team said, 'The best welcome ever!'
