Vicky Greenhalgh attended a South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce & Industry luncheon at Rookery Hall.
With an audience of over 100 guests celebrity guest speaker Pete Waterman took the opportunity to give people his vision for the future business landscape.
At the time there were so many changes in the political and economic landscape and he said there would be tough times ahead but he supported the emergence of the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). However he pointed out that local businesses had the chance to get involved and they must if they wanted to have a much more direct influence.
As someone who has invested millions in opening a depot in Crewe as well as spearheading an engineering apprenticeship scheme for young unemployed people, he gave the impression that every business has a part to play in projecting the economic interests of Cheshire.
Vicky said “Whilst the landscape has got even tougher, as a small business we still value the networking opportunities the chamber provides. I get to know new people at every event and usually learn something new about the local business community or ways to improve the way we do business.”
