JCI Bradford has forged ahead with a turnaround success story that should be inspirational to many.
In 2009 JCI Bradford should have been celebrating 50 years of developing people in the city but instead it was on the verge of folding.
With a serious chunk of enthusiasm and leadership by Philip Cavalier-Lumley, JCI Bradford is now riding the waves of success in many ways. A higher profile and re-established reputation in Bradford, a growing interest by local people wanting to know more membership and JCI Bradford’s strong relationships within its JCI national and international organisation.
With a great board of directors to focus on the direction of JCI Bradford and more new members joining who want to get involved and really make a difference to their lives, careers and communities.
Just last year, Philip won the JCI Yorkshire regional public speaking competition and JCI UK National competition and will be competing in Germany in June this year for the European title. JCI Bradford last had this kind of success in the 1970’s and 80’s.
