News & views

“I have supported LBV for many years now at previous firms and have had no hesitation in recently signing up Excello Law as new members to the group. In addition to organising an excellent events calendar with some great networking opportunities across a variety of business sectors, LBV also acts as the mouthpiece of the Leicester and Leicestershire business community and provides all its members with the platform to lobby local and central government on matters of importance to our city and county. The membership fee represents great value and I would wholeheartedly recommend any local businesses thinking of joining to do so.”

Richard Osborn, Regional Director, Excello Law

“It’s critical for local businesses such as ours to have a substantive mouthpiece within their community. This can only be achieved by companies joining and actively supporting organisations like LBV. I’m always impressed at how LBV events appear to focus on the key issues affecting both my business and most other ones in Leicestershire.”

Peter Wilkinson, Managing Director, Landmark Planning Ltd

"The practical implementation of many government and council strategies doesn’t always translate on a business/local/community level, creating problems for which there is an obvious ‘common sense’ solution. Businesses might not know where to go to find out more or press their case but LBV gives a voice, provides a platform to influence and helps local organisations to get noticed.”

Chris de Luca, Director, Juniper Financial Management Ltd

“LBV offers something for all of our staff – from lobbying and influencing, to helping us to understand business issues in the city centre and outside, through to strengthening our network of key contacts in the local business community. Through the regular events, and communication via newsletters and LinkedIn posts, LBV also helps us to stay in touch with the latest news and developments affecting Leicestershire businesses. This is particularly helpful for our staff who work here but aren’t local to the city and county.”

Paul Smith, Area Director, SME Banking, Leicester at Lloyds Bank

Leicestershire is a hugely diverse county and we’re extremely proud to reflect this diversity through list of members. From international banks to hip creative agencies, you’re in great company.
