Haverhill Chamber of Commerce Lodges Objection to Plans to Pedestrianise Town’s High Street

15 Mar 2012

Haverhill Chamber of Commerce has officially objected to plans to pedestrianise the High Street after canvassing views of retailers in the town who have signed a letter against the proposals.

The Chamber, which exists to represent the voice of Haverhill’s business community, believes that the plans will seriously impact on the retailers of the town who are already challenged by the current economic climate.

The Chamber has gathered together a group, which includes most of the traders and businesses on the High Street (both members and non-members), who are affected by the proposal and written to Suffolk County Council on their behalf. More than 40 traders and businesses have signed the letter.

Sarah Howard, Chairman of Haverhill Chamber of Commerce, said: “After canvassing views from retailers in the town centre, the Chamber fully understands the difficulties that full pedestrianisation will bring to businesses on the High Street.

“We broadly agree that the current excessive use of the High Street by cars cannot carry on. However, many businesses could not operate effectively with complete lack of access. We have several very workable suggestions to put to the County Council and have invited them to meet with us to discuss them.”

Members of the Haverhill Chamber of Commerce attended today’s (15 March) Haverhill Area Working Party meeting at Castle Manor Business & Enterprise College where the plans were discussed.

EMBA Mini Masterclass: Leadership in an Uncertain World, University of Suffolk

01 Aug 2016

The next Executive MBA Mini Masterclass will be held on Monday 1 August, 6pm - 7:30pm, in the Boardroom, Waterfront Building Ipswich. Following on from the last EMBA Mini Masterclass the topic will be Leadership in an Uncertain World, lead by Dr Tom Vine, EMBA Course Leader.

Tom says, “We regularly hear calls for 'strong leadership', not least in times of uncertainty. But what of followership? We rarely ever stop to think what followership involves. In much the same way as politicians are having to acknowledge following the EU referendum an analytical focus on followership will better equip us as leaders. This short session explores the psychological dynamics between leadership and followership and in so doing suggests ways in which we can enhance organisational cohesiveness in times of economic uncertainty.”

If you are interested in attending, please could you email Laura Messer (l.messer@ucs.ac.uk) or telephone on 01473 338616.

MBA and Executive MBA - What's the difference?

25 Jul 2016

While a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) and an Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) gravitate around the same arena of disciplines, there are key differences between the two which potential applicants should consider when thinking about which course is right for them.

Business professionals who take on a good MBA or EMBA programme will find their studies are dynamic, innovative and practical. The time of dry academic studentship in this area is thankfully over and the focus on relevant and useful skills acquisition for a successful career has transformed how business professionals learn and shape what they learn to work for them.
