The Chamber provides a range of services to help support and grow local businesses – from start-ups to exporters – whilst also playing a wider role in the strategic development of Doncaster’s economy.
Daniel is instrumental in driving the Chamber’s policy and lobbying activities through working closely with a variety of public and private sector stakeholders to ensure the voice of Doncaster businesses is represented at all levels.
Recent successful campaign wins for the Chamber include the opening of the National College for High Speed Rail, the accepted bid to open the Doncaster University Technical College, and the opening of the Great Yorkshire Way link road from the M18 to Doncaster Sheffield Airport.
Doncaster Chamber also created the Doncaster Skills Academy in 2014 to address the ‘skills gap’ between business and education. To date the Academy has worked with over 300 business volunteers to support 15 Doncaster secondary schools, four primary schools, and 18,500 students, to ensure they have the skills and information they require for entering the world of work.
Daniel is Chair of Trustees for the Doncaster University Technical Centre, Chair of CAST Theatre, a Board Member of Finance for Enterprise, and a Governor for Hungerhill School.
