As the newly appointed Operations Director for the Jewellery Quarter BID (JQ BID), I’m looking forward to working with you to bring more life to the Quarter.
One of my first tasks has been to visit businesses in the area and this one-to-one dialogue will continue to be a principal part of my role.
I will be supported by the recently appointed John Hodgkiss who will concentrate on marketing and events, as well as the newly formed JQ BID Management Committee. We are currently working with the Police to look for suitable combined office space in the area.
2013 will be the year for change in the Jewellery Quarter. The JQ BID Management Committee is committed to making sure that all our year one objectives are delivered effectively – on time and within budget.
Thank you to all the levy payers who paid their first instalment back in September. It’s early days yet and there is lots to be done in January to kick-start the BID campaign. However, some of that revenue has already been put to good use with our Christmas lights campaign as well as a marketing initiative, in conjunction with Marketing Birmingham, to promote the area’s Christmas offerings.
We will be constantly striving to improve the BID delivery service and I would appreciate your feedback and comments on how we’re doing.
It’s time to stop talking about it and make things happen, which is exactly what we intend to do.
We would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous new year, and I look forward to touching base with many more businesses next year.
