Our Chamber is going from strength to strength. Our breakfast this month recorded the most registrations ever.
However it was the energy, the innovation, the sharing of ideas, the learning, the getting to know people and their businesses better and the many laughs that made this event one of our best.
An increase in numbers is excellent yet it is the amount of willing participation that is giving us our momentum.
I was reminded this past week that this is our 25th year as a Chamber and it seems appropriate that we should celebrate this milestone. One would think that those who founded the Chamber would be proud of our collective efforts building on the collective efforts of those that have preceded us.
How might we celebrate and recognize these 25 years that have gone by so quickly? If you have any thoughts on the matter please contact any one of the executive as soon as you can.
Lastly I share with you the fact that I have been privileged to see and experience the movie Hidden Figures. The movie tells the story of the USA getting into space. The experience is about three brilliant, high achieving women and for someone like me who lived through this era it was like holding a mirror to my innermost prejudices that I did not know that I held. These were three humans who irrespective of gender, skin colour and cultural background simply blew away the shackles of limitations and in the most humble of ways changed our world...and me for the better.
