Harlow Stories - Issue 1

Hello and Welcome

to Harlow Stories

Noticeboard & Business Awards ..................2

We formally describe the title as: A refreshing publication produced in association with Harlow District Chamber of Commerce, with a focus on good news stories and entrepreneurial inspiration in the Harlow and West Essex region.

Letters ..................................3 Rob Halfon MP .....................4 Local events & networking ..5

We hope you agree! Hopefully, you’ll notice that Stories is advertisement (and indeed, advertorial) free. Our feeling is that there are plenty of advertising opportunities out there already for local businesses (we are happy to recommend some if anyone’s interested) and that this publication will thrive best if it has some independence from advertising.

Relationships .......................7

Harlow Stories is produced by local people for local businesses. Our aim is to help attract, inspire, motivate and intrigue readers. Each issue of Stories will have a theme or a red thread.

Entrepreneurs ....................16

Given that relationships are what drives business and membership organisations, and is in fact, our motivation to produce this magazine, the launch issue kicks off with ‘Relationships’. How can our businesses gain from strong professional relationships? How is networking beneficial to our bottom line? How important is social media in relationship building? We welcome any and all feedback and would be very glad to hear your views on our magazine. For now though, put the kettle on, kick back and have a read!
