Tools for a successful 2018

Dorchester Chamber set the tone for a positive new year with its first Networking Breakfast of 2018, which attracted more than 50 members.

The event, sponsored by Wessex FM, included a welcome from our new President, Steve Farnham plus a talk from David Pitfield and Dawn Crossingham of the Dorset Growth Hub, outlining their free services for new as well as existing business owners.

All-in-all it’s a positive start to 2018. But remember the key to success is to set achievable goals for your business this year, avoid setting too many as this can be overwhelming and inhibit your progress.
