Tamworth Common Interest Group | Meeting 2
Meeting 2 – Thursday July 22nd 2021, 14:00 – 17:00
The Tamworth Common Interest Group will meet again in July following the successful inaugural meeting held in April 2021. The meeting will provide a great opportunity for businesses located in and around Tamworth to get together to discuss common issues and exchange ideas on how to improve. The second meeting will take place at Bluedog Fences, and will feature an introduction to Apollo Engineering from Managing Director David Errington, and a presentation from Apollo Engineering staff about a recent kaizen project.
The plan is for Common Interest Group meetings to be held at least on a quarterly basis, with new business locations to be added as the group builds momentum. By featuring a range of host companies for the meetings participants will be exposed to a broad range of business operations, completed improvements and potential opportunities for improvement.
