Chamber article in Woking News & Mail

'Paul sends in his last monthly article

Ecoprod, the Woking based washroom solutions company has joined the Chamber. We first made contact with the company three years ago when they exhibited at our Woking Means Business exhibition. However, with the formation of our new Environmental Committee, managing director Marcus Rose, was keen to get involved and has agreed to serve on the committee.

As a specialist supplier of water and energy saving products for commercial washrooms, it supplies thousands of customers with waterless urinals, low energy hand dryers, touch free sensor taps and eco cleaning products, helping them to save water and reduce their carbon footprints. Customers include big names such as McDonalds, KFC, Marks and Spencer, Tottenham Hotspur and large office complexes such as Dukes Court in Woking, as well as schools, universities, village halls and small offices.


On Tuesday 24 November, we were delighted to welcome the new Leader of Woking Borough Council, Cllr Ayesha Azad, to our monthly Executive Committee meeting to introduce herself and meet the members of the executive.

On Thursday 26 November, we ran a webinar delivered by Dene Stuart of The Exceptional Leader Academy entitled ‘Discover the 8 Mental Skills for Business Success.’ The event was kindly supported by the Council’s Start Up Woking initiative.

Our final Zoom networking event of the month took place on Friday 27 and was again fully subscribed. In December, we will be holding a networking event along with a Quiz on all matters Woking. A small donation of £5 is being requested to support our member, Your Sanctuary, whose work supporting those experiencing domestic abuse has been under even greater pressure than usual as a result of the Covid pandemic.

On a personal note, this will be my final monthly article for the Chamber as I leave my role as Business Development Director. Having also served as President from 2008 to 2010 and organised their annual Woking Means Business Exhibition for 16 years, I will miss the close involvement with the running of the Chamber but will be pleased to be staying on as a member. I wish the President Richard Field and my successor Rebecca Charlesworth every possible success in this very challenging time.
