I joined Cork Chamber in December 2009 to meet new Business contacts and to promote my Business. Business is done through the Chamber by building Relationships on your terms. I would encourage business people to join and use this Network effectively by going to the events and getting to know both members and the chamber team.

We have been a member of the Cork Chamber for many years and continue to find the membership of value to our company. Cork Chamber proved invaluable in our recent venture into the establishment of Shared Services in the Cork area. The Cork Chamber Team keeps ahead of current challenges and topical issues facing our Industry today.

As an Internet company I wasn't sure if we were a natural fit for the Cork Chamber of Commerce. I joined and was delighted with the result. Our company has got great support, publicity and sales contracts as a direct result of our membership. I'd highly recommend joining to any early stage IT company in the Cork area.
As a start up business in 2007 I was advised to join Cork Chamber and it has proved to be very good advice indeed. The networking events in particular have given us prime opportunities to meet with other members. I would not hesitate to recommend membership of Cork Chamber to any commercial organisation or body

The Cork Chamber has been pivotal in helping me see how a multinational corporation and the local community truly can work together. I lead a global strategy team, and the the relationships I've made through the Chamber have delivered benefits for our business, not just in Ireland, but throughout IBM worldwide
Cork Chamber has developed in the last few years into a vibrant, energetic and ambitious enterprise. From the breakfast meetings to the speed networking events, the promotional opportunities to the monthly magazine, there is a steady stream of potential business. The Chamber team manages to create a constant positive vibe and that's saying something in these challenging times.
It was the logical choice for Delicious to join the chamber to build up a good network of business contacts within the city. Our membership has presented us with many business leads and it opened doors when approaching other member companies. Also, it has been invaluable in allowing us to meet senior, experienced business men who mentor and offer advice.

The Kilkenny Group have found the Chamber membership to be an important platform to create a stronger profile and build local business relationships. Kilkenny have hosted and attended the business after hours events throughout 2010 and meeting other Cork business people has proved insightful particularly in a difficult trading environment. I would highly recommend the Chamber for businesses wanting to expand and develop in the greater Cork area.

I have been able to meet, literally, hundreds of Cork business people through Cork Chamber events. These have helped me greatly in enhancing the profile of the Cork Independent, in keeping my finger on the pulse of what's happening in business. The business done at these events in one year has paid for the Chamber subscription for the next thirty years! Good value, I think.
The Munster Finuas Network is responsive and adaptive to the needs of our business. Through the Network we have organised highly technical training courses as well as courses which focus more on our employee's softer skills. In all instances, the quality of the courses delivered has been of the highest standard.
Citco Fund Services
98% of our products are exported and documentation is the engine of exports in global trade. As a result we constantly use the facilities of the Cork Chamber Export services and are extremely happy with the helpful, prompt and efficient service provided.
