Ilkley Business Forum networking
Wed March 8th, 5.45pm – 7.45pm
Outside the Box Cafe, 2 Bridge Lane, Ilkley, LS29 9HN
BADCOT members are welcome to IBF monthly meetings, which feature networking and speakers.
The main speakers this month are Liz Blizzard and Gill Fielder from the Valley Clinic, who will be speaking about the importance of office ergonomic assessments, as well as providing valuable information on how to look after employees and meet recent health and safety legislation obligations.
Jane Sanderson, employment support worker at Outside the Box, will also give a short presentation about the new Outside the Box Works’ project, which helps people into paid employment.
Also speaking will be new member Jeremy Lewis from CMdelta Consulting, a boutique firm specialising in consulting, coaching and facilitation with a focus on the health and wellbeing of organisations as a whole.
IBF and BADCOT are aware that the new rating valuation for business rates due to take effect in April is adversely affecting a number of businesses in the LS29 area.
Please would you email your experience to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know whether or not your rates will be changing this year. Some will stay the same and some will reduce, as well as some increasing.
We would like to know what is happening in the area so that we can lobby our MPs if appropriate.
