The Chamber’s primary purpose is to create opportunities for its members to make valuable connections and to provide them with as many opportunities as possible to make those connections.
These take place across the kingdom in members’ premises and offer a relaxed setting. Our networking philosophy is that it is not what you can get from a Fife Social but what you bring to it that will yield the best results in the long term.
So we don’t do lectures or speeches or mandatory introductions, just a chance to engage your fellow members in an informal business conversation, whilst developing the valuable connections that potentially offer long term benefits for your business.
Our Fife Learn events, particularly the high profile Masterclasses, given by some of Scotland’s most influential business people, offer a chance to network with likeminded fellow members.
If you like your networking with a little razzamatazz then look no further than The Fife Showcase. These events are among the most prestigious in the Fife business calendar. The likes of the Fife Business Awards and The Chamber annual dinner, bring together some of the county’s most prominent business people in the Kingdom’s most illustrious venues, allowing you to network in style.
