About Cheshire branch
IoD Cheshire branch, led by Chairman Jeff Hardman, has helped the IoD forge strong links with prominent employers in the area. By staging regular events and bringing together business discussion groups with key stakeholders in the Cheshire economy, such as the University of Chester, Chester Zoo and the Cheshire and Warrington LEP, IoD Cheshire is able to keep its finger on the pulse of business right across the geography of the branch.
Famously diverse and widely scattered, the area is brought together by the IoD’s ever-sharper focus on the strategic cities of Chester, Warrington and Crewe. By informing and nurturing collaborative relationships, IoD Cheshire maximises for its members the many opportunities arising from developments such as the Enterprise Zone status of the Cheshire Science Corridor, the establishment of a new high-growth Science Park at Thornton and of course, HS2 activity and associated connectivity growth in transport.
