Through our partnership with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), all BIBAs winners will be offered a programme leadership masterclasses, site visits and growth workshops. This eight-month programme aims to ‘make the best even better’.
The Academy is broken down into the following areas:
This event is followed by the Winners and BIBAs Graduation Dinner.
It will also provide a fantastic opportunity to get to know fellow award winners, previous winners, meet with sponsors and experts from the Chamber, UCLan and MHA Moore and Smalley.
- Kevin Roberts, former Chairman & CEO, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide;
- Edwin Booth, Chairman of North West supermarket firm, Booths;
- Tony Attard, CEO Panaz & Chairman of Marketing Lancashire
- Mike Blackburn OBE; Regional Director BT & Chairman of the Manchester LEP
All sessions provide practical information and time given to plan and reflect on how to embed this information back into the business.
This will include the businesses which are fellow BIBAs winners and others organised by the Academy.
Access to talent and knowledge
UCLan experts will signpost businesses to the appropriate support, simplifying the process.
The Academy Alumni
Membership of this community will continue indefinitely, and over the years to come will accumulate a collection of past BIBAs winners, creating a great network that will grow year on year.
