The Business Improvement Network

Events

The Business Improvement Network runs regular workshops and Open Space events, which have been hosted by member organisations such as: Automobile Association, Balfour Beatty, BSI, Computer Associates, CQI, Eli Lilly, Ernst & Young, Johnson Wax, Oracle, O2, Orange, Prudential, Royal Mail, Siemens and UK Atomic Energy Authority.

By members hosting or sponsoring events, we are able to keep the cost of attending to a minimum, and add value by holding events in some extraordinary offices and venues.

If you would like to host an event please contact us.

The events are usually run in an Open Space style, giving participants the responsibility and space to connect with others and discuss what really needs attending to in order for them to share and learn from the group.

Workshops and training sessions will be organised and offered exclusively to BIN Members on topics related to key elements of business improvement. If you would like to suggest a topic, please tell us.

To receive advance details of all BIN events, join the Network now.
