Evolving from the Sevenoaks Chamber of Trade and primarily serving the needs of the traders; the focus is now on the wider needs of the general business community where the Chamber serves a network of over 200 member organisations ranging in size from start-ups and small businesses to international organisations.
Chamber members and guests meet at relaxed and vibrant events in Sevenoaks, Westerham and Swanley, where networking and the forging of lasting business connections take place.
“We have a long and successful tradition to uphold, the Chamber’s role has always been to share good practice, to support one another; to connect, to influence and to grow” said Dawn Blee current CEO of the Chamber.
