The Ambassadors are a group of local, experienced professionals who have a great deal of expertise between them. Their objective is to support the Chamber. Their primary focus is to be of assistance to Chamber members, whether new, longer term or thinking of joining.
Our new support initiative - that we’re calling the A Team - will make it easier for members to get in touch with Ambassadors. Can the A Team help you? Please get in touch with the Chamber and ask for the Lead Ambassador.

Expert Virtual Assistant Services
I am Emma, the owner of Expert Virtual Assistant Services Ltd. I have been running my business for over 3 years now offering Virtual Assistant Services to small businesses and consultants who just don't have the time to get many of their business tasks done. I have a background of over 20 years in sales and recruitment and have worked with many clients and organisations. I love dealing with people and have really benefited from joining the Worthing and Adur Chamber since I started my business. It's been a great platform for meeting like-minded businesses and building my network in local the area as well as offering invaluable support and training opportunities. I'm certainly proud to be an Ambassador for them and look forward to welcoming more members.
For me the role of an Ambassador is to provide a friendly face and ensure all new members feel welcomed, comfortable and included at Chamber events. Nothing worse than standing alone at an event whilst it goes on around you!
We combine creative graphic design, solid technical expertise and great service. We also have the brand new, Mobile Design Studio.
Established 24 years ago, Mint have the expertise to work with all types of organisations who value and need to make the right and a good impression, online and on paper.
As Lead Ambassador I want to help us become an effective and proactive group of Ambassadors. The Chamber offer a comprehensive range of activities and events and our objective will be to offer our support by keeping current members informed and engaged, by making new members feel welcome and by generating interest in the wider local business community.
