GU6 Initiative

Dorset Chamber’s new initiative helping build the resilience of business leaders in what is potentially the most challenging business climate of our time.

Named ‘Got your 6’ (or GU6) after the term originating from WW2, where fighter pilots of the US Navy or Air Force would watch the ‘backs’ of fellow pilots in formation at the vulnerable rear ‘six o’clock’ position. Dorset Chamber ‘has the backs’ of our business leaders offering personal and confidential support to employers who may be finding stress levels too much to cope with.

Our GU6 Champions will be able to offer crucial peer support to fellow members, as well as signpost to further help where needed.
