Tony has focused on supporting us with new member recruitment, and in building stronger links between BITC and other local authorities in the region. This has proved particularly beneficial in Calderdale where our Business Connector is now very engaged with Calderdale Council. He is also encouraging other local authorities to come into membership of BITC, and sharing the benefits he has experienced from Bradford Council’s membership.
As a representative of BERG, Tony played a key role convening businesses in Hebden Bridge last summer after the flooding, and supporting the many individuals and small businesses who had been affected.
He has supported the United Futures project by hosting an event in Bradford in January, linking businesses in with local youth organisations.
