The 3M BIC is fast approaching its 5th anniversary, how time has flown!  So I thought it would be a good idea to showcase a “typical working week” for us so you can see the innovative and diverse work that my amazing colleagues are doing.

At the beginning of the week we welcomed our newest tenant, Gravity Online Ltd who are an IT Consultancy. We also have a new Network Member, David Rangel who runs his own recruitment and marketing agency who was impressed with our hot desk area with superfast Wi-Fi!  We look forward to working with you both.

On Wednesday we had our monthly 3M BIC Team Meeting, a chance for the team to all sit down together and catch up.  This meeting was dedicated to our plans for a week of celebrations for our 5th anniversary in May.  We will be reflecting on our achievements so far as well as holding events and promotions for you all to see the work that we are doing and showcasing all the changes currently taking place to the building to house the new equipment as part of the HIIP (Huddersfield Innovation & Incubation Project).  More information about the week in May and invitations to various events will follow shortly so keep checking our website and social media streams for more details!

Paul our Lead Designer and Jordan our Events Officer spent time during the week filming an update to our promotional video that you see when you click on  For some of us this meant a week of dodging cameras being pointed at you when least expected!  Storyboards are being drawn up and interviews are being arranged, so keep your eyes peeled for the finished production very soon.

Jordan’s week has been very busy and diverse. As well as his directorial debut mentioned above, both he and Maisie, our Events Assistant were integral to the planning and logistics of the inaugural Colne Valley Business Conference hosted by Thelma Walker, MP for Colne Valley, in our Exhibition Space on Friday.  The event was very successful with over 40 businesses within the Colne Valley attending and 10 exhibitors (including ourselves).  Our very own CEO Liz Towns-Andrews compered the event and John McDonnell, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer was the keynote speaker.

Steve Gregory who looks after the Business Engagement Centre here at the 3M BIC also had a busy week. As well as attending the above conference, he had meetings with Daniel Styler from Barclays and Barney Mynott from the Federation of Small Businesses to discuss ways of working closer together.  He also had a very interesting visit to OSL Risk Management in Hull and met with Dr Elvis Hernandez-Perdomo to discuss supply chain risk management.  Melissa Liburd who is Service Manager (Business Support) for Leeds LEP was also with us during the week.  Melissa will work from the Business Engagement Centre (BEC) once a fortnight to help co-ordinate local business support –

As you can see, there is always plenty going on. If you are a business within the Leeds City Region who would like to talk to us about ways to grow/improve your business, if you need help with the design of a new product or part, need a conference space or meeting room or a hot desk to escape from the kitchen table, or would like more information on HIIP (Huddersfield Innovation & Incubation Project) and how this is relevant to your business, give us a call or drop us an email, we would love to hear from you!
