You can literally get to know the face behind Cork businesses with a new social media campaign by Cork Chamber.

It is planning to feature stories from business owners and their staff about their backgrounds and what they like about their particular enterprises.

Executive member Deborah Barrett said the chamber hoped to launch the campaign soon, and it would feature short videos and interviews with owners and staff.

She said many people would be familiar with businesses and may actually know who owns them, but know little or nothing about their backgrounds.

‘”The chamber is celebrating business in Cork through a new digital media campaign titled ‘Faces of Cork Business’,” said Ms Barrett. “Corkonians will have the opportunity to share their insights into what makes Cork a great place to do business.”

The campaign will feature both video and photo content highlighting some of the familiar and new faces of business in Cork.

The chamber has been serving the needs of the local business community for 189 years and represents more than 1,100 companies who employ 100,000 in the region.

Chamber chief executive Conor Healy said members acknowledge their most valued facet of the chamber’s service is the face-to-face networking possibilities.

“We all know that there is a something special in people-to-people communication that just can’t be reached through other mediums like email,” said Mr Healy. “We also know the explosion of social media has enabled our companies and our members to reach new realms of conversation.”
