We are fortunate to have a committee that’s pretty representative of our membership with an equal number of men and women (with one vacancy) across a good age range and business interests.
I have been in the insurance industry for 42 years and a partner in McGowan Corporate Solutions since 2001 providing a general insurance broking service to individuals and businesses alike. I joined the Chamber in 2004 and became President in 2014 serving until 2016 and then again last year for another 2 year period. The Chamber is a great conduit to meeting other businesses and helped to establish the business locally. It also provides a great insight into the local community!
On behalf of the Chamber I also help to run the Haslemere Business Centre set up by the Chamber to give small businesses a helping hand to set up and grow.

Five years ago, I launched my travel business with Not Just Travel. Ever since I can remember, I have loved to travel; my passion for it has never waned. I love listening to my clients hopes and desires for their dream getaway and then researching hotels and destinations and delivering their perfect holiday package. My clients range from honeymooners, young families with children through to retirees and I can help with every type of holiday from a world cruise to a weekend in the UK.
Having lived in the local area for over 24 years and with an empty nest at home, I decided to join the Chamber of Commerce to become more involved in, and contribute to, the local community and to meet likeminded business owners. I look forward to my role as Membership Secretary.

As the Committee’s newest member, I’m looking forward to helping shape the future of our local business community and making sure that Haslemere stays firmly on the business map.
I edit the Chamber’s newsletter and provide public relations advice and support to the Committee.

Committee Member and Chief Tweeter
Working in a variety of roles and always looking for ways to improve my knowledge I finally took the plunge to work for myself as an ad hoc administrator, data entry clerk and virtual assistant before it was suggested to me that I should really use my social media skills to encourage individuals, small businesses, creatives and non-profits to utilise Social Media to grow their brand and business.
I’ve not looked back! My @TweetingByHand business is about sharing my skills and giving people back their time to concentrate on what their passion is: their business!
I tweet on behalf of the Chamber and provide a lison with the Surrey Hills to South Downs Community Rail Partnership
