In addition to the value of networking and the opportunity to help shape the Cornish business landscape, we have gained significant financial savings. For example, we receive a 60% discount on AA membership for our fleet as part of the benefits package. That saves us nearly £1000 a year alone –greater than the amount we pay for Cornwall Chamber membership. Being a member of Cornwall Chamber is extremely positive all round.” – Tristan Netherton, Microtest
