Let's Do Business 2023

LDB Exhibitor

Did you speak to us on Stand B64?

Maybe you just grabbed one of our pens and ran. Or perhaps you had a handout thrust at you and it seemed like your best chance of escaping without having to chat. However you got to this page we're glad you're here.

Below you will find out who we are, what we do and how we can help. If that seems like too much reading then we'd be more than happy to talk to you instead. Just fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

Who was there

If you did speak to us then you'll have spoken to one of the mugshots over there - going clockwise from the top left they are:

Victoria (Vicky) Harte - Managing Director, Vicky keeps everything and everyone on track.

Catherine (Cathie) Lalley - Leadership & Management Curriculum Lead, Cathie is also responsible for the new Improvement Practitioner apprenticeship.

Patricia (Pat) Stone - is a trainer for Manufacturing, Warehousing and Customer Service. She's also delivered on Waste and Business Admin so she knows a thing or two!

Ean Faragher - is our Quality & Marketing Manager. It's hard to shorten a three letter name but he will respond to "E" if you ask nicely!

What did they talk about?

It's very likely apprenticeships might have been mentioned (once or twice). Below you can find the course leaflets for all of the apprenticeships we deliver.

Why should you explore apprenticeships in your workplace?

Below are some statistics on the benefits of offering apprenticeships based on employer feedback

Apprenticeships are a sound investment for any employer. They help create a more skilled workforce, who have stronger ties and commitment to the business. It's estimated that for every £1 invested in an apprenticeship the UK Economy benefits by £26.
