Running a BID ballot at any time can be confusing and highly technical. When do I serve the required notices? What do the council need and by when? How do I decide upon my levy rules? These are just some of the questions we receive from BIDs we speak to on a day-to-day basis.   

In this  2.5 hour online course, we will cover what needs to happen and when to ensure that your ballot operates in line with the BID regulations, timings and tactics required to gain the support that you will need to increase your chances of a successful turnout.  

This course is aimed at BID Managers, Directors, and senior staff.
