Focus on the future for B4

Prior to the B4 Classic Event at Rhodes House in September, 30 B4 Members from a wide range of sectors gathered to tell us what we do well and what we could do better. As part of an ongoing assessment of B4 and how we can improve what we do for our members, the next stage of the process is the formation of a B4 Advisory Board.

We hope to provide our members and readers with some exciting news about future developments we will be focusing on to make your B4 experience even better than it already is.
