East Norfolk’s new business support initiative

In April 2019, Norfolk Chambers of Commerce announced the launch of Coastal Co.nnect, a dedicated monthly Chamber space in the heart of Great Yarmouth.

Coastal Co.nnect is the name of the monthly sessions run from the Town Hall by the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

These sessions are a great opportunity to come and meet Norfolk’s Chamber of Commerce to find out how they can support business. As more sessions are run, they’ll also have business experts with them who can give advice and guidance on a variety of topics.

They’re running morning networking sessions to begin with, from 09:30 – 11:30, to encourage local businesses to connect with not only the Chamber, but also each other.

Each week they’ll host a different guest speaker, covering a range of topics useful to any business. The chamber team will then be available for a further two hours to allow anyone to drop in over lunchtime to ask questions or find out more about them.

Get involved

If you’re an expert in your field and would like to volunteer some of your time to help fellow business-people in East Norfolk, they’d love to hear from you. These sessions are designed to add value to the business community so anyone who’s interested in passing on their expertise in a non-salesy way will be warmly welcomed.

All sessions will be held in the Assembly Room at Great Yarmouth Town Hall, with the first on Thursday 16th May. After that they will be:

  • Friday 14th June
  • Thursday 18th July
  • Thursday 15th August
  • Thursday 19th September
  • Thursday 10th October
  • Thursday 21st November
  • Thursday 12th December
