Following a successful first year of sponsorship, Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce (TVCC) are pleased to announce a continued partnership with leading public accounting, tax, consulting, and business advisory firm BDO for the next two years.

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) QES is conducted by TVCC to gain insight to the views of the business community. A leading indicator the report helps us identify the aspects that require the lobbying of key decision-makers on topical issues that support jobs, growth, and the regional economy.  The survey often picks up big changes in the economy long before other surveys or official statistics.

Commenting on the extended sponsorship deal, Tim Major, Account Manager at the Chamber said “We welcome this continued partnership with BDO, which has been of great benefit to the Thames Valley business community.  No other organisation produces a Thames Valley focused report of this nature, which gives an up-to-date overview of the economic landscape of the region”

David Brookes, Managing Partner at BDO Reading said “We’re delighted to continue our valued partnership with the TVCC on the Quarterly Economic Survey, providing valuable sentiments for businesses in the region. We look forward to continuing working with the chamber and its members, providing additional insight into the survey findings and supporting the local business community.”

The latest results from the 2021 Q4 survey will be published on April 12th at a virtual event which will include BDO speakers Christine Francis, Director – Business Restructuring and Rosalind Payne, Partner – Tax.
