Sandwell Business Ambassadors

Who are the Sandwell Business Ambassadors?

Sandwell Business Ambassadors are a collective of business leaders formed in 2016 to represent business interests in Sandwell and promote responsible business practices. They liaise closely with Sandwell Council and they have a modest editorial budget paid for by the council, but they set their own agenda.
