Challenging and supporting business to be a force for good.
BLNs are regional hubs of Business in the Community members committed to making a positive impact on their local community. There are nine networks, each comprised of local senior business leaders.
BLNs drive the our core strategy across Northern Ireland. They tackle key issues of local concern that reflect the strategic priorities of Business in the Community.
Whether it is in supporting employability and job opportunities for local people, supporting education in local schools, tackling local environmental issues or making a real difference to local community projects, BLNs offer business the opportunity to make a significant contribution to their local community.
BLN membership is by invitation only. Senior business leaders are invited on the basis of the experience they can bring, their expertise and access to networks which supports effective engagement with local partners to achieve scale and impact.
BLNs meet quarterly and members typically serve a three year term. Outside of meetings members are encouraged to help with promoting programmes or activities and building wider relationships with local partners.
Business Leadership Networks carry out truly inspiring work in their local communities. They are a great mechanism to bring together business leaders from both the private and public sector, to identify and support collaborative projects that have a positive impact on the local community.
