July Chamber Lunch

Join us on 18 July 2019 for our monthly networking lunch, being held at Cromwell Hotel, Stevenage. These events provide a great opportunity for business networking with members and non-members alike. Each month we invite a guest speaker to inform and motivate you.

We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker at this event will be Hannah Essex, Co-Executive Director Policy and Campaigns at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).

Hannah will share some highlights of the work BCC do to influence change with, and on behalf of, Chamber members. As well as providing an update on where we are in the Brexit process and what this means for business, Hannah will also look beyond Brexit at the current challenges, and opportunities, for business. Focusing on the theme of ‘people’ she will talk through BCC’s campaign priorities and discuss what more business communities and Government can do to ensure firms have access to people with the right skills, in the right places.

We will also be joined by Michael Nadasdy, Programme Manager – Cyber Crime, Hertfordshire County Council who will discuss the importance of being cyber aware.


Hannah Essex shares her role at the BCC with Claire Walker. Claire and Hannah lead the British Chambers campaigns, communications, public affairs, policy and senior representative work on behalf of the Chamber Network.

Claire and Hannah joined the British Chambers of Commerce in September 2018 from social enterprise Teach First, where they co-led the Communications Department. Claire covered Hannah’s maternity leave and they formed their partnership when Hannah returned in 2015. As one of the only Executive level job-share partnerships in the country, they are considered trail-blazers in the concept of co-leadership.

Together, they have a combined 35 years’ experience leading in a range of organisations, driving transformation and impact. Claire has held a number of trustee positions and led a range of community projects. Hannah is Vice-Chair and Founding Trustee of The Girls’ Network.
