- Opt in, Annual Report and AGM
The MyMiltonKeynes Annual General Meeting (AGM) is fast approaching in September and we would like to extend an invite to local businesses for the chance to hear about developments within the BID and to discuss any issues or views about the city in an open forum. The AGM will also feature the launch of our Annual Report for the final year of the first term of the BID from 2021 to 2022. However, whilst we have our levy payers who support the BID and enable it to continue to improve the City Centre, we need members to opt in and join the BID officially. Membership cards are being distributed to levy paying businesses to become official members and to enable you as members to vote at the AGM and have your say on creating tangible change in your BID area. It is a great way to become more involved in the BID and in the local community, so please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to opt in in time for the AGM.
- Healthcheck Survey
In our fast-paced city, a lot has changed since our last major consultation with businesses for the renewal and we would like to hear from you about the current state of play in MK, including how issues such as the cost-of-living crisis, travel disruption, business crime and returning to work after COVID-19 have affected you.
If you have any concerns about the area or comments on what else you would like to see happen in Milton Keynes, then please let us know by getting in touch at email@example.com. We are committed to making the area a safe, enjoyable and more competitive place for businesses so please get in touch and give us your views.
- Business Continuity – Are you prepared?
As the MyMiltonKeynes Business Crime Partnership takes shape, the BID wants to make sure that businesses in the city are well prepared and able to trade, despite any risks or threats to their business. Have you ever considered how or for how long you would be able to keep your business trading if you were suddenly unable to get into your premises? If there was suddenly a major flood or gas leak, then how would you as a business cope before, during and most importantly after the incident? Threats to the trading of a successful business such as illness and infection, terrorism, natural disasters, or newer vulnerabilities such as cyber-crime, are all issues that face managers and staff in the modern trading environment.
As we prepare to bolster security in the city and enable businesses to have more control over business crime, we would like to invite you to take part in producing your own Business Continuity Plan. The plan has been created by MyMiltonKeynes to enable you to be fully prepared for any major incident and to be aware of any vulnerabilities facing it. Being able to respond quickly to an incident is vital for the safety of staff but is also a very valuable and empowering tool in establishing you as a leader in your organisation. For more information and to arrange a visit to go through the plan, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
