Enlightening tour for Gillingham Chamber members
The recent Gillingham Chamber event for local business professionals was an enlightening tour of Dextra – Gillingham's largest employer and manufacturer of commercial lighting solutions.
The tour, the latest in a long line of events organised by the Chamber for members and non-members, was conducted by Dextra CEO Keith Brownhill and included a short review of the company's history dating back to its origins in the late seventies, as well as an insight into how the company operates today.
Gillingham Chamber vice-chairman Simon Reeves of Alan & Thomas Insurance Group was pleased with how well received the evening's event was by attendees.
"On behalf of the chamber and the twenty members and non members that attended the event, I'd like to say a big thank you to Keith and Dextra for an excellent and informative evening. The tour of the factory was amazing - even at 8pm production was in full swing in certain departments and it was very interesting to see the expensive technical machines working as well as learning about the new LED technology."
"After the tour, we had the usual networking opportunities and it was very pleasing to see familiar and new faces."
The next event planned by the Chamber for January will be an interactive workshop led by a panel of professional advisers each providing free advice on business issues including accountancy, law, insurance, IT, social media, recruitment, PR and marketing. Details will be available shortly on the Chamber website.
