Inspiring owners urged to think big

Have your say

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce has called on business leaders in the city region to play their part in driving forward ‘transformational’ growth projects from the private sector.

New Chamber president Stephen Williams believes 2014 will be an important year to build the foundations for long-term growth and wants company owners to think big and inspire others.

Mr Williams was speaking at the Chamber’s inaugural president’s reception after being elected in October.

“Sheffield Chamber is playing its part in driving forward growth in the city region. We want to be a critical friend of the city council and Local Enterprise Partnership to encourage decision making and provide the right environment for business.

“We all need to be ambassadors for the city region and shout about the expertise we have through the companies located here. We have some good businesses, all working hard and many very resilient. But we need to see more business-led transformational projects which set ambitious targets and will put this region amongst the best in the world.”
