Business Improvement Districts

My name is Chris Kolek and I have been running my business to provide independent consultancy services since April 2011. Kolek Consulting Limited has built up an impressive track record of managing projects and delivering professional business services to revitalise our towns and communities. This has been demonstrated through the development of Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), the management of economic development programmes, the preparation of strategies and action plans and engaging with businesses and communities. Here are a few examples. Refer to our portfolio for more.
