"We cannot fault the attention given by the Chamber, any time we have needed their assistance so are happy to recommend joining to any business large or small" - Anne Campbell, Accommodation Scotland
"One of our voluntary community groups had ongoing HR concerns and we accessed the Caithness Chamber HR line that is available to you as Members. They were extremely helpful and, with additional sterling support from Trudy, we brought the situation to an acceptable conclusion for all parties’’ - Frances Gunn, CVS North
"We joined the Caithness Chamber of Commerce to be connected to other business groups in the area and to have a voice. Small businesses, like ours, are often neglected and ignored. I have not used the Chamber on many occasions, but when I have the response of the local team has been immense. They team have given my business advice and moral support when all others around us have failed to do so. I cannot recommend the Chamber highly enough." - Jon Baggs, Weavers Craft Shop
"The Caithness Chamber were really supportive throughout the whole process of putting together my business plan and the advice and guidance they were able to offer me really helped to develop a realistic and achievable plan for my business, which is now in its 3rd year. I have on many occasions asked for business advice and have without fail always been greeted by friendly and helpful service. Being still fairly new to the self employed business I find this invaluable to the development of my business." - Jill Innes, Storyboard Films
