Meet Your Local President: Belinda Beaver
"My name is Belinda Beaver and I have been a Chamber member for six years. I represent the Chamber and Bolton businesses as an active member of the Bolton Vision 2030 Economic Prosperity Group, which has recently launched a brand new procurement portal – Bolton Business Connect - designed to provide one platform for contracts, jobs and supply chain opportunities for local businesses. Also Chair of the Town’s Fund Board, this role has involved bringing together representatives from across the town to bid for a share of government funding, which has recently succeeded in winning an award of £23.9m to regenerate Bolton town centre.
"As Director of Attention to Retail Ltd - which trades as Agitare - I have a vested interest in the opportunities available to grow the town’s prosperity and the individual businesses. We are a hardy bunch and now, more than ever, we will need to be resilient, react to fast-changing environments and collaborate with our fellow business owners if we are going to survive and grow.
"Chamber membership is one of the best things a business can do. It will provide a supportive environment and a plethora of services that suit businesses of all sizes and stages of growth. Networking is one of the quickest ways to grow a support network and the Chamber has plenty to choose from. Bolton is on an upward trajectory over the next few years with massive capital investment both from government and private investors, so there has never been a better time to be part of that picture."
Meet your Bolton Vice President: Warran Bolton
"I have been a Chamber member since the inception of our company, OwlTree Web Solutions Ltd, and the Chamber has been an important part of our journey. The support and guidance, just when we need it, has been invaluable.
"In addition to support, we have also made many new contacts over the years, some of which have turned into great strategic partnerships. On a personal level some contacts have become friends.
"My role as Bolton Vice President is to work closely with Belinda in supporting Bolton businesses and therefore develop the Bolton and wider economy for the benefit of all.
"The Bolton Business Group is panel of Bolton Businesses and Chamber Members who have Bolton in the heart. The group provides a forum and a vital link to Bolton Council and the dialogue has produced real results. I have been a member of the group for several years.
"The best way to get value from your membership is to get involved. Make use of the support on offer and meet your fellow members. Both Belinda and I are active members of the business community so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us, even if it’s just to say hello.
"I hope to meet you at one of the many upcoming events."
