Other upcoming Chamber events include an Interactive Finance Workshop from 10am to 12pm on November 5th on understanding finance for business.

The workshop will be led by McCartney & Co Accountants.

A third workshop on November 19th will focus on Pensions and will give members a more in-depth understanding of pensions for business.
