Deeside Business Forum

what we do

The support and encouragement from the Rt. Hon. Lord Jones PC from 2015 when he agreed to be President of DBF, has been pivotal to the growth and recognition of this not for profit organisation. DBF are proud to have Lord Jones as their President as his council is fundamental to the principles and ethics to support all businesses

Lord Jones has fought many successful campaigns for the business community throughout his 30 plus years as an MP and latterly as a member of the House of Lords, supporting businesses, charities and community causes by championing and giving them a voice.

Lord Jones said: “It is a privilege to work alongside DBF as the inclusiveness of the organisation welcomes and inspires all businesses to achieve their goals by instigating change for the whole business community through direct campaigns and influence activated on their behalf.

DBF is an association of businesses of all sizes who partner and support each other for the good of the whole. This has been demonstrated many times since 2015 but particularly during the Covid outbreak when the whole business community partnered and collaborated to bring their employees safely back to work, sharing experiences and best practice though virtual seminars and webinars facilitated by DBF.”
