Thomas JreigeThe Chamber of Commerce and Community came out of an idea and is quickly becoming the epicentre of a wonderful community collaboration. Kelly and Peter have done a wonderful job bringing the Chamber of Commerce and Community together into this large conglomerate of like minds, community driven people and a wonderful and warm collaboration of business people. While my business primarily deals with large enterprise businesses, I give my time back to community chambers because this is the place where all businesses grow from. I have existing friendships in the Chamber and over time will nurture new friendships. The Chamber is going the right way about developing the framework for a strong community base. It is not just about building the business-to-business relationships but also the business-to-community relationships. Just like doing business anywhere in Asia to which Focus Cyber Group does their fair share of, friendship comes first and then business second. You can trust your friends so friendship is the most important part. Keep up the great work Kelly and Peter and look forward to the long and prosperous and healthy journey that lies ahead.
Erin NashAs soon as Peter invited me to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce and Community I knew straight away I wanted to be involved. I had been searching for a community of like minded business people for some time, and was excited to jump on board right away. It is a lonely job being a small business owner, so it has been fantastic to connect with others in the same boat as me. I have been a member of other business groups in the past, but never have I felt so welcome and included as I do with this wonderful group. Everyone is really supportive and genuinely interested in my business, as well as how we can all help each other to grow the Ellenbrook community as a whole. I’m looking forward to working with the Chamber over the coming years and feel like this is such an exciting time to be involved. Congratulations and THANK YOU Peter and Kelly.
Jo ManningThere was no hesitation from me when Kelly started the Chamber. I felt welcomed, included and part of the journey from day one. I have tried other associations but none have ever given me the sense of family and support that this one has. Remembering my name and what I did was awesome, but connecting me with others, pushing me out of my comfort zone, and committing to support me in my journey has blown me away. I have already conducted business with a number of other members and I'm starting to collaborate with another on a joint venture. Peter and Kelly are doing a great job and I look forward to many more years with the Chamber - Job well done - This was just what I needed!
Paul FernieI joined the Chamber of Commerce and Community as I believe our local area has been screaming out for this type of thing. As a long term local resident, a local business owner and a long term President of a local sporting group this fits perfectly in the world I live and operate in day to day. I have a large family with children attending schools in the area and who are involved in multiple community groups and so there is no better way than to meet and learn about more of our great people, local businesses and community groups than to be involved in the local Chamber of Commerce and Community. I have already had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people that fit these categories and I look forward to meeting a lot more. Together we can learn with and from each other and help each other’s businesses and community groups to grow whilst helping and learning more about the community as a whole. It is a win, win, win situation in my book. I think the founders, Kelly & Peter, have come up with a fantastic idea here and I am excited to watch it develop and grow into something very special that benefits the members, business owners and our community itself. We can all work together to enrich each others' lives, businesses and community groups and support and grow with each other along the journey. I would highly recommend the Chamber of Commerce and Community to anyone.
