The Chairman's Dinner, held at Sopwell House Hotel on Thursday 9th November was another resounding success.  The evening was attended by 240 business people where the sponsors, HSBC, SA Law, BDO Stoy Hayward and Business Link and their guests, were invited to a champagne reception prior to the evening.

During the evening guests were entertained by The Opera Dudes - with Tim Hutchings temporarily becoming the fourth Opera Dude for the evening, and our after dinner speaker was the hilarous Adrian Walsh.  The charity raffle was in aid of The Hertfordshire Community Foundation and generous guests raised over £2400.  

Chamber Chief Executive Tim Hutchings said:  "Once again this event has been even more successful than last year.  Everyone who attended had a really enjoyable evening and the entertainment was superb.

The Chairman's Dinner has already been booked for next year and will be held on 8th November 2007.  Anyone wishing to reserve a place or table should contact Jill Coggins on
