Since 2015, Carlisle Ambassadors, have been promoting and operating a business relationship community with a vision to engage with local businesses, through assisting them to network, learn, grow and build profitable strategic partnerships, all the while growing into a business network that now has over 180 members.
The membership is made up of like-minded business people who want to benefit from a strong and influential network and are interested in making a difference for the future growth and development of the City of Carlisle.
Carlisle Ambassadors is designed to grow and promote business development opportunities for the district. It aims to undertake this by working with a variety of partners to build key relationships, with the overall objective of actively encouraging inward investment to ensure the sustainability of existing businesses and the incubation and growth of new high value businesses.
Alongside this the network aims to facilitate the creation of a range of skilled, high quality job opportunities throughout the area to ensure the future growth of the City as a major economic and cultural hub in the north of England.
Carlisle Ambassadors attracts a broad cross section of key decision-makers, people who find our professional and business focused format an ideal environment for building close working links and establishing an invaluable ‘support network’ of business contacts for the future growth and development of their businesses.
We all recognise that the value of networking is now widely accepted, most businesses realise that word-of-mouth recommendation is by far the best way to gain new business. To that end Carlisle Ambassadors is a great way to meet new customers, new suppliers or meet like-minded business leaders and share experiences and nurture future relationships.
