The Bray and District Chamber of Commerce is delighted to invite you to our inaugural Business Networking event for local businesses in Bray.
This new networking initiative will be launched on Friday, March 22nd 2019 at 10 am at the Martello Hotel in Bray, where we will be discussing “The Power of Networking” with our first guest speaker Siobhan Fitzpatrick from Women In Business Network Ireland.
The purpose of these new events is to build business relationships with fellow local Business Owners, to raise the profile of your business and create opportunities for growth in the town together. Bray has an abundance of businesses wanting to work together collaboratively and Bray Chamber is helping to create the environment for this.

Our Event Topic: The Power of Networking
Networking is really important, always has been, always will be but it is now more important than ever. However, schools and colleges don’t teach it and companies don’t have strategies for it but most will agree that Networking is critical to growth and development.
We live in a rapidly changing world where technology and globalisation are transforming whole industries. Success in the past is no guarantee of success in the future and the strategies that got us to where we are today will not get us to where we want to go tomorrow. This presentation is designed to encourage behaviour change through the gradual adoption of a series of networking skills, which will give you a distinct competitive advantage in today’s changing business world.
