In recognition of the enormous number of challenges that small businesses have faced due to COVID-19, Eleanor joined Business in the Community’s (BITC) Small Business Taskforce as Co-Chair with the fundamental belief that if all sectors – public, private and not-for-profits – work together, we can support the recovery of small businesses, and in turn the recovery of communities quicker. As an action-orientated leader, Eleanor is keen to draw upon the skills and expertise across all of BITC’s network and beyond to make a difference for all of society, but especially in those areas most impacted by COVID-19.
