Exclusively available to Chamber members and included in every company's membership fee, the Chamber Idea Exchange matches member companies together to share expertise and ideas that will enhance how their businesses operate.
We match up member companies according to location and their area of interest, facilitating dialogue between the two so that a member of staff from one can spend up to a day on-site with the other, learning about how their business operates and taking away new ideas and processes that they can implement within their own workplace.
Whether it’s new ways of working, introductions to new suppliers, efficiency savings or simply a different approach to problem-solving, the scheme allows businesses to learn from others who are willing to share their own knowledge and expertise.
Speaking at the launch of the Chamber Idea Exchange John Bridge OBE, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said: "This exciting new initiative is really taking the Chamber back to its roots as a facilitator of dialogue between member companies. The Chamber Idea Exchange will bring together businesses with a common desire to share knowledge with others and improve their own working practices, all completely free of charge to our members."
