Accelerate Programme 2019 Develops Bibby Line Group Colleagues

Bibby Line Group  //  5th November 2019

Colleagues from across Bibby Line Group recently took part in a four-day development programme at Carden Park in Cheshire.

Now in its second year, the Accelerate Programme is designed to develop key skills in our next generation of colleagues, while identifying opportunities for the business to develop further.

The groups presented back their ideas including being a responsible business, artificial intelligence, business blind spots and new sector development.

BLG non-executive director Geoffrey Bibby, and his son Charlie Bibby attended the final day to listen and discuss the presented ideas.

Victoria Leadbetter, Course Co-Leader, said, “Accelerate provides the opportunity for delegates across the organisation to develop leadership skills, build business relationships and work together to develop innovative solutions to business problems. The commitment, enthusiasm and collaboration from all of the delegates helped make this programme a success.”

The 2018 programme led to cross-Group teams focusing on how we can better induct people to our business, improving inclusion and diversity, setting up a mentoring programme, working closer with universities and improving procurement.

Colleagues who meet the programme criteria are put forward by their HR and Exec teams to join the programme and represent their company. This year the programme was oversubscribed, however we hope to run it again in 2020.
