Initiative Member

We have a long established programme of business leadership delivered through our Initiative Teams in Bristol, Bath and Swindon. The Initiative directly serves not only our member businesses but the wider business community

The Initiative exist to ensure that the interests of business are at the heart of key strategic decisions taken at local and regional level. We work alongside local councils, local enterprise partnerships and key stakeholders to influence and shape the economy of our region.

We focus on bringing business and public sector together in partnerships and activities that bring success to our region, they provide business leadership on:

  • strategic issues across the region
  • partnerships and stakeholder bodies
  • lobbying and discussion with MPs and Ministers at a national level
  • issues of concern to business that stretch beyond economic issues and cover social and environmental concerns
