In this issue of In Touch we have an interview with Karl Wills, Managing Director, Pelipod, who developed an innovative solution simplifying the supply chain and is based in the West Midlands.
You can also read about how we’ve been helping young people get ‘work ready’ with free work placements, the 50th anniversary of Birmingham’s towering landmark – BT Tower - and how BT's national network centre in Shropshire lined up for BBC's Children in Need.
There’s news on the partnership between housebuilder Redrow Homes and Openreach, Britain’s digital network business, which will bring fibre broadband to new housing developments in the region. And the terrific team work which helped pave the way for high-speed broadband in the centre of Whitchurch and an update on the Black Country Broadband Project.
