Cracking on at Brighton Chamber's 2019 Summit

If you work with Brighton businesses, I’m sure you know of the Chamber. However, if you haven’t come across them already, Brighton Chamber is a dynamic and supportive membership organisation for businesses of all sizes.

Not only was it my first day as a Catalyst Team Member, it was also the first day of University for many students and as I struggled for a place on the very full buses towards campus, after three attempts I eventually got on. Once on campus, as my friends were heading to their lectures, it hit me that I was no longer going to be a student for a whole year.
