The Herefordshire Directors Forum (HDF) is a model that goes from strength to strength. It brings directors from growing SMEs together in a strategic monthly development workshop where they can also get to know other decision makers, learn from each other and do business together.  Everyone at the top needs support and direction; comments from delegates suggest that the HDF is a very powerful way to achieve this.

Group 14 will start in January 2016 - please let me know if you would like to chat about whether this could help you and your business or not.

This concept of ‘localisation’ is becoming central to many business models and I am increasingly being asked to speak on this topic and how it works at business events.

The HDF Continuity Programme was requested by delegates that wanted to carry on meeting after their forum had finished. We therefore take directors out to visit fellow HDF 'graduates', some of the very best businesses in the county.

There will be three more visits during 2016.

 

  • Tim, you are a highly original and dynamic speaker - your keynote address at our Convention provoked: "Tim Kidson was excellent" "Passionate and energetic" and "First class" are typical of the comments made by some of the 140 delegates attending."
