Getting the most value out of the EDA

The EDA Engagement Awards reflect how many times members and affiliates have engaged with the Association’s Activities in the 12 months January to December 2017.

For both Members and Affiliates there were 15 opportunities to engage, from attendance at Regional Business Forums (4 in a year) through to taking advantage of the EDA’s Training and Apprenticeship Programme. Smaller business are not disadvantaged, as engagement is counted by company and not by the volume of individuals who engage.

The EDA’s President, Simon Barkes, presented the Awards.
