Today, I became a Trustee of The Bridgewater Hall Community Education Trust (BHCET).
The BHCET maximises the education potential of the Bridgewater Hall which is a world class concert hall in the centre of Manchester. The BHCET runs a wide range of projects, programmes and activities taking the building and its rich artistic life as a stimulus.
The Board of Trustees consists of many well known faces of Manchester and the North West, and how I would add value is yet to be worked out. I am hoping this may be in couple of areas:
These days, just like you, I am very careful about what activities I take on and how these align with my overall objectives in life. My daughters’ interest in music and drama paid a part in my decision to accept the position of Trustee. I would also be keen to explore how they could take part in activities as I learn more about the Trust.
In case you did not know, my other voluntary contribution is to help bilateral trade between India and the North West through UK India Business Council.
