ROCCI Member Testimonials – Hirsch Stores Strubensvalley, Roodepoort
The Roodepoort Chamber of Commerce & Industry have opened a Testimonial Page, giving Members the opportunity to tell of their own experiences of being a member of the ROCCI Chamber.
Hirsch of Strubensvalley Branch has this to say:
“I started working at Hirsch’s roughly a year ago as the Public Relations Officer and thus was introduced to and became a member of ROCCI.
Knowing that I was new, the staff of ROCCI were extremely helpful in assisting me with my duties at Hirsch’s, being to co-ordinate and arrange monthly networking meetings, sourcing good guest speakers and inviting people to my events. They have even come to my rescue when I couldn’t source sponsors for a particular cocktail evening that I hosted at Hirsch’s. The team from ROCCI literally came to my rescue overnight with providing all the catering for the evening, all sponsored by their own network of business associates.
Being a part of their network I was invited to all their networking and other fun events. These events are always well co-ordinated and well attended. They are also a lot of fun as they bring business associates together in an informal environment, thus making it easier to network with others and share ideas. I have really enjoyed meeting all these new people, as I have gained a lot of confidence, not only in what I do but also in myself, and as a result my own network has grown in leaps and bounds. I am particularly impressed on how ROCCI take their time out to showcase their members’ businesses by way of sharing on social media, emails, advertisements and interviews such as this.
In the year that I have been a member of ROCCI I have seen them grow from strength to strength, with some surprises up their sleeves on a regular basis. I cannot wait to see what’s next in store.”
