Work with us Wednesdays - Understand why communities are important

About this Event

Part of a series of Onboardlocal Webinars brought to you by High Speed (HS2) Ltd that aim to help local businesses navigate the HS2 supply chain and better understand some of the things that we are looking for from suppliers.
We want local businesses along the line of the new high speed railway to be able to make the most of the opportunities HS2 will bring, and get involved in the supply chain wherever they can.

Our aspiration is to be a good neighbour every day, and we are committed to putting engagement with communities at the heart of everything we do. We strive to be an exemplar project in our approach to working with communities and this means HS2 Ltd and our suppliers also have to be actively involved with the community to build mutually beneficial, long-term relationships.

During this free webinar an expert from HS2 Ltd will:

  • Outline why it is important to the success of HS2 for all those working on the project to be a good neighbour
  • Explain our approach to community engagement and what it could mean for you as a potential supplier
  • Demonstrate the different ways that our supply chain is helping us to achieve our 10 commitments to local communities
  • Spend some time answering your questions

Book your tickets now.

Date and time: Wednesday 15 July, 11:00 - 11:45

We will be publishing video recordings of each webinar online, so if you are not able to listen live you can still learn about each topic through a dedicated playlist on the HS2 YouTube channel.
