Karen O’Reilly Founder, EmployMum and EmployFlex

“Joining Cork Chamber has been hugely beneficial for a small company like EmployFlex. The friendly and approachable team at Cork Chamber have been an invaluable support to us from an educational and networking perspective. Being involved in The Business Owners Forum has allowed us to learn from fellow business owners as well as network to develop new business leads.

We have really enjoyed the social events as well, particularly the Chamber Annual Dinner at City Hall which was particularly enjoyable this year with hugely inspiring speeches. The varied events along with real networking opportunities which have translated into obtaining new business, have made our membership of Cork Chamber a must for us on an annual basis.”

Liam O'Riordan, Head of Cork Office, Investwise

“I am delighted to share my experiences and insights on the incredible benefits of being part of Cork Chamber. It has enhanced my professional life and has brought numerous advantages to both me and Investwise Financial Planning Cork.

I’m in my third year in Cork Chamber and I have found the networking opportunities, resources, advocacy, and business community involvement have not only helped my business but have also created a new circle of friends in my personal and professional life in ways I didn’t expect. I highly recommend joining to any entrepreneur, business owner or company looking to thrive in today’s competitive marketplace.”

Maxine Hyde, General Manager at Ballymaloe Foods

“Cork Chamber membership is of great value to Ballymaloe Foods. It has brought together such a diverse range of businesses to form a powerful and supportive network. Driving progress for Cork businesses through meetings, lobbying and policy briefings.

To a smaller business like ours the training offered is invaluable where we don’t have the scale to do the same training in house, as well as the export documentation service and advice. While the Cork Chamber works hard to achieve all of these services for Cork businesses and organisations, there are also wonderful friendships created through the events, bringing an element of fun, conviviality and motivation to our working lives.”

Kate Popova, Founder, Everywhere English

“Working with Grace and the team at EEN Cork Chamber has been invaluable for Everywhere English as an early-stage business. Due to the nature of our business, internationalisation is a massive part of our strategy. EEN has given us the platform and network to build partnerships abroad. Fortunately, we have secured a partnership with two companies in Portugal. We met both companies at one of the events organised by EEN here in Cork. Thank you”
