Welcome to the regular

column of the KINGSBRIDGE & SALCOMBE Chamber of Commerce and Business Club...

Busy... Busy... I

t’s been a busy month here at the KSCC. We’re in the process of updating our website and we’ve been organising retailer focused evenings in

both Kingsbridge and Salcombe. On top of this, we’re arranging a calendar of training events as well as some morning sessions that will focus on work/ life balance and motivation. We recently spent a very enjoyable morning at the South Sands Hotel where Alison Theaker of The Spark spent some time talking with a group of 20 members about Selling without Selling - we’d like to thank both Alison and the South Sands Hotel for providing us with a great session at a superb location (and the pastries are worth a mention too!) We look forward to working with them again soon. As I write, we’re gearing up for a busy Business Club meeting at Cliff House, Salcombe on Thursday 23rd March. Once again we’ve got a number of speakers covering a whole variety of topics from business rates to boating. Following the event, we’ll be making our way over to the multi award winning Victoria Inn to continue the networking over a well earned glass of wine and a meal from the special menu provided for the evening. These events are always relaxed and as entertaining as they are engaging. From our perspective, there’s really nothing better than being able to connect local businesses to other businesses and parties who can then form a mutually beneficial relationship. In other news, our AGM is fast approaching. If you

haven’t been to one of our AGMs you really need to come along; there’s a good reason that this is one of our most popular events! Full details next issue. In the meantime, for more information regarding the KSCC and how you can become involved, please email
