Business for Calderdale member Martin Haigh, founder of Brighouse-based training and development company, Lattitude7, has been awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Years Honours list. Dr Haigh receives the award for his services to the community, charity work and changing the lives of young people in West Yorkshire.
Martin said he was thrilled and honoured to receive the MBE and is looking forward to going to
Buckingham Palace to collect his award later this year. He said he does not carry out his charity/community work for personal gain but it is just amazing to be recognised for his endeavours. He would also like to thank the many people who have sponsored his activities over the years and provided moral support during his journey.
Martin has been a member of Business for Calderdale for a number of years and tries to attend as many meetings as possible. Martin said “I really enjoy the B4C meetings, they are very varied and there is always a warm welcome and a friendly face. I have had the privilege of delivering a couple of seminars for B4C and have done work with a number of the members. I would highly recommend this networking group to any like-minded business owners”.
