Our chairman Michael Oglesby has coined a phrase over the
years that resonates with all Bruntwood staff which is ‘People like to do
business with people they like’. It’s a simple philosophy that touches on the
fact that successful business is all about people and relationships.
At Bruntwood we firmly believe that if you want the
community you operate in to succeed, you can’t just sit on the sidelines and
what is good for the city region will in turn be good for you – both for your
business life and in your personal life. That’s what we like about Downtown in
Business – they appreciate the importance of forming solid, long-term business
Downtown’s events and dinners are a great way for us to
network, learn new things and widen our exposure to the market and as a
regional business it’s important for us to network across different cities, including
Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.
We all know it can be hard to make a great event but with
Downtown they know how to strike a good balance between serious topical
discussions and the importance of having a bit of fun at the same time. The
team at Downtown are great to work with and they work hard to maintain their
relationships with civic and political leaders to ensure the views of their
members are heard.
Happy Birthday DIB – keep doing what you do!
