BECBC e-Newsletter No1 - May 2017


Welcome to the first BECBC e-Newsletter

We’ve thought long and hard about adding to your inbox.

A new e-newsletter for BECBC members came up as an idea a couple of months ago – before our AGM and before the upheavals of a June general election announcement and Chapter 11 for Westinghouse. 

We’re pretty sure that we can do something different by covering the background to key issues for the Business Cluster, by profiling figures in the organisation (and its partners) and by creating a communications channel that you can easily share with your colleagues.  That’s the plan and we very much hope that it will add value to your BECBC membership.

And we’re only anticipating a roughly quarterly distribution so we won’t be adding too many emails to that inbox. Please share this information with your colleagues – we’re keen to spread the distribution among member companies and fuller versions of all the articles are on the BECBC website.  And please let us know your feedback and comments.

Best wishes,

Ivan Baldwin,

Chair of BECBC (and Busiiness Development Director of Carr’s Engineering)

PS As we were finalising this first issue, I was a delegate at the PPP launch at Sellafield Ltd. This is going to be an important approach and will have implications throughout the nuclear decommissioning supply chain. My brief perspective is online – you can read it here.
