Developed to address the needs and concerns of the larger business, Corporate membership gives you access to business advice and support, together with a portfolio of events, products and services. There is also an exclusive programme of highly relevant business meetings and events running throughout the year.
Business leaders are able to develop long term, mutually beneficial business relationships and they are encouraged to take the opportunity to develop joint commercial initiatives or work in partnership with us.
Corporate members have the opportunity of benefiting from local engagement and influencing the regional policy agenda, as well as international trade services and export support. In addition, a dedicated Corporate Business Manager will work with you to ensure you receive the maximum benefit from being part of the Thames Valley Chamber business community.
In 2017, there will be a number of activities focusing on specific sectors such as energy, technology, property and construction, as well as Bank of England Inflation Report briefings.

What our members say about Corporate Membership
Anneli Thomson, MD, Sandler Training UK is passionate about giving Chipping Norton businesses a voice: “I want to make sure our voice is heard and want to share opinion and push processes forward: housing policy for example. I am also keen on promoting market towns, local talent and road links. Having been involved for a few months, I am impressed with the energy in Oxford created by the Chamber”.
Phil Reid, Head of Sustainable Design, RED Engineering: Phil was a guest speaker at a Chamber Corporate Dinner and shared some of the challenges involved in delivering international engineering projects, including working on a daily basis with offices in remote locations and the need to accommodate cultural differences. “We have realised we need to work harder locally which is why we have joined the Chamber”.
Lee McQueen, MD, Raw Talent Academy (RTA): prior to joining the Chamber, RTA did not have any local clients – most were from other parts of the UK. Meeting local businesses at Chamber events made Lee realise RTA was missing a trick not tapping into the Oxfordshire market and its industry clusters: “this opened our eyes to building new networks and partners locally, through networking. There are business heroes in our local area, no doubt”.
