Team Talk: Natassja Wright

This week Natassja Wright, Membership Executive, talks about her role at the Chamber.

Moving into my ninth month at the Chamber, I am lucky to be part of a dynamic and exciting membership team. Our office move to Elliot House this month will introduce a Members' Lounge and I am looking forward to our new bright and open workspace.

The main focus of my role as Membership Executive is to engage with members, helping them to fully optimise their membership. I am office based and work closely with Regional Managers to support businesses across a wide range of requirements. The favourite part of my role is the diversity of sectors I interact with- providing me with new challenges and insights everyday.

As a Chamber we strive to support our members through our broad offering of services. This year we have introduced several new benefits which have proved to be very popular and useful. These include our Funding Finder Tool, Chamber HR, Chamber Energy Solutions and Skills Reviews. We also have a great networking platform with over 150 events a year, including the 42 'Action For Business' events free for members to attend.

I have been fortunate enough to attend some of the expos and events across Greater Manchester and to represent the Chamber at the British Chambers of Commerce awards this year in London. They have all been excellent opportunities to engage with our members and celebrate the successes of businesses in Greater Manchester.

Finally, there is never a dull moment as I am also part of the Chamber's netball team, the 'Chamber Challengers'. Our team of nine has united the office and brought a spectrum of wisdom and youth together. As we enter our second league we continue to grow and improve each week - always having fun!
