Business Matters

The North West Business Leadership Team (NWBLT) is a unique regional entity, established to harness our members’ collective influence on the region’s wellbeing through the power of our member companies and institutions, their combined workforce, contacts, their supply chains, their ideas, their voices and the example they set as leaders in their respective industries.

Our Mission

TO MAKE THE NORTH WEST THE UK’S MOST ATTRACTIVE REGION IN WHICH TO LIVE AND WORK FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.

Business Matters

Economic growth cannot be delivered without business leaders stepping up to do our bit, within our own businesses, driving up productivity and encouraging excellence. We must also be exemplars to others. Responsible, proactive and ambitious business leadership is essential.

We can grasp the opportunities presented by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and deliver a prosperous future for generations to come.

Our members’ companies employ directly or through their supply chains in excess of a quarter of a million people. The business rate contributions we make support local services. We actively encourage best practice in employment policy, including employee engagement and diversity and adoption of the Living Wage. We invest in our people and communities right across the North West.

It is clear that we have much more still to do to address the dislocation and alienation felt by many North West communities. We will contribute to the task of business having a more positive and stronger impact on society, creating a more positive narrative for the future of all the people of the North West.

Key to this work is promoting leadership and ambition, sharing best practice and recognising excellence wherever we find it. This is our story.
