Networking - making new contacts, seeking out new customers or suppliers is part and parcel of everyday life in business. DGChamber is here to help create the opportunities for you to meet other businesses both in the region and in the neighbouring areas. The emphasis is always on informality - creating a relaxed environment to chat and make those all important contacts.
Every month we hold our popular NETWORK6 events!
In 2016 these events have been held in Dumfries, Langholm, Castle Douglas and Stranraer.
NETWORK6 events follow broadly the same format starting at 6pm and finishing by 7.30pm.
We always have an interesting speaker from the business community and there is your chance to say a few words about you and your business during the 'Magic Moment'.
Network6 events are free for DGChamber Members - just buy your own coffee and cakes!
Non members can attend for just £5.
DGChamber Being Business
Workshops are designed for a variety of businesses, from Self-Organisation for solo-preneurs to Key Strategic Indicators for the larger enterprise.
Working in partnership with members, DGChamber continues to expand its commercial training offer, with a constantly evolving range of topics and skill areas now available to businesses.
Please check the 'EVENTS' section for dates of the current courses.
Joint events are regularly held with Cumbria Chamber.
This joint event rotates between Gretna and Carlisle to make sure that there are always new faces at every meeting.
These events are often done as speed networking, giving you just a short time to make that connection.
From time to time we organise events with North East Chamber, Edinburgh and Glasgow Chambers for those businesses looking to spread their wings.
Women In Business
Each year we also arrange our very popular Women in Business event offering the opportunity to network and take a stand to raise the profile of your business further.
The annual DGChamber Business Lunch is THE networking event of the year.
Taking place at the beautiful Easterbrook Hall, this event has over 250 of the region's most influencial business people in attendance.
With speakers from the local authority, DGChamber and a world class headline speaker from the world of business, it is simply the must attend event in the business calendar.
The DGChamber Annual Business Lunch takes place in October.
