It’s time to kick start solutions

It’s time to kick start solutions. Oxfordshire has so much to gain and so much to lose unless we pull together, namely private, public and academic  institutions – OV is a unique and wonderful platform to ensure all stakeholders have a say and cover all angles for the multi-benefit of everyone living and working in Oxfordshire.

A voice that can be heard

It’s vital that the business community in Oxfordshire has a voice that can be heard both within local government and further afield. Initiatives like this help local businesses, stimulate growth and ultimately  benefit the entire community. We’re very excited to be able to support this new B4 initiative.

A powerhouse region of which we are all proud

Oxford and Oxfordshire is now a powerhouse region of which we are all proud. A key part of that success has been the success of the business community, driven often by the collaborative culture which has been key to the success of our universities over almost a millennium. With Oxfordshire Voice, we have the opportunity to take that culture a further decisive step further, with the minds of the business community applied to Oxfordshire issues and its voice heard much more widely at every level.

Providing the mechanism

Many Oxfordshire businesses face the same challenges surrounding transport, infrastructure and recruitment of skilled workers which are having an impact on economic growth. It is important that these issues are addressed collectively, and Oxfordshire Voice provides the mechanism for that to be achieved.
