On Wednesday 26 February, I’ll be speaking at the H1 Event in Leeds about delivery style. More specifically, about how to judge where your organisation is with delivery, where you want to be and then deciding on the most appropriate way to get there.

We believe that 101 Ways and northern businesses should work together to help push this forward by creating and supporting communities.
