Springing into 2024

By January 10, 2024No Comments

As we enter 2024, there is a real sense of momentum in the BIVDA office.  It feels much longer ago than last week I was wishing members a happy New Year.

I’d like to start this newsletter by introducing two new BIVDA initiatives.

Our Springboard programme launches on the 1st February.  This is a really exciting piece of work, led by Lucy Lehane, who will tell you more about it elsewhere in this newsletter.

Second, our new HR working party launches on the 18th January.  Aimed at supporting members across all HR areas, it is chaired by Nigel Job of Rem Tech Talent Management.  Nigel is an expert in the field, having provided his expertise to organisation ranging from start ups to blue-chip giants.  We have a vacancy for a vice chair, so if you would like to steer our efforts in this area we’d love to hear from you.

Finally, a request from me.  I’m keen to ensure the newsletter is relevant, engaging and useful.  I’d love to hear what you’d like to see included – whether its news, analysis, expert commentary or member profiles?  Do let me know your thoughts by emailing
