Business leadership

Our Initiative teams work with more than 270 of the region’s largest employers to positively influence the way that our area is shaped, managed and developed.

As a network of peers, we engage with a range of local and national decision makers in order to ensure that our area continues to thrive, economically and culturally, in a way that is both sustainable and inclusive.

We have a track-record of success in partnering with local authorities to deliver economic growth and cultural enrichment programmes in towns and cities across the region, and consult with our members closely to ensure that their voices are heard.
