Good news at the end of the week when we were appointed through Calderdale College’s External Funding Unit to produce three Sector Plans for Greater Lincolnshire.

This is an area in which CDI Alliance Director Stuart McFarlane has considerable experience having previously produced similar sector plans for the Regional Development Agency Yorkshire Forward. For this project our team has been strengthened considerably by a partnership with Fraser Henderson. Fraser is a founding director of OpinionWise and a budding technologist with over 10 years experience of designing digital dialogues in the public and private sector.  He is a practising associate of The Consultation Institute and has been working on government IT projects at local, national and international levels. Fraser’s knowledge of Lincolnshire’s economic base fits well with Stuart’s grasp of sector and cluster strategy.

Consultancy such as this is one of four business activities undertaken by CDI Alliance, the others being business support, training and programme management.
