South West Advisory Board

Our work is led by groups of senior executives who provide strategic guidance and support us in achieving our social and environmental objectives, nationally and locally.
By joining a regional advisory board, senior professionals can influence the local debate, shape the agenda for action and work with other leaders to identify the unique ways in which business can help innovate and create more sustainable livelihoods and prosperous communities across the region.

The role of members of a regional advisory board is to:

  • Act as a ‘critical friend’ and sounding board to the Business in the Community (BITC) team
  • Act as an ambassador for BITC, encouraging membership recruitment and engagement, championing responsible business in the region
  • Facilitate activity on the ground both within your own organisation and your broader network

Please contact Tracy Rees, Leadership Engagement Manager, if you are interested in joining this regional advisory board.
