  • Jas Athwal DL - Non-Executive Director

    Jas Athwal is a driven and enthused business consultant who is keen to help businesses of all sizes reach their potential by providing strategic advice and practical solutions. Jas has a vast array of contacts in the business world, both locally and nationally, and helps companies reach their potential by providing the links and key contacts that would otherwise be difficult, if not impossible, to obtain. After completing his education in 1978, he promptly joined the family business. After eleven successful years, the family business divided, due to the increasing geographical distance between the different business sites. Jas remained in this position until 2010, when he finally sold the business. After a few successful years of business ownership, he was in a position to diversify away from his primary business. Jas was involved in the pioneering “LOTS” (Living Over the Shop) Government Scheme and with the help of Bradford council was able to effectively convert the space over the shop into six self-contained flats. Following the initial property success, he subsequently purchased two working men’s clubs in Bradford and was able to convert them into fourteen self-contained units. The renovation process was extremely successful and drew a number of offers from a range of different housing associations. Since selling his businesses in 2010, he has been fortunate to help many businesses as an ambassador, consultant and advisor. The most prestigious and rewarding positions during this time have been his appointment to Deputy Lieutenant for West Yorkshire and becoming the chairman of local Rugby League club, Bradford Bulls.

  • Liz Weatherill, Managing Director of Enable2

She also taught Business Studies and life skills to students with learning difficulties, helping them develop life skills to live independent lives. In 2007, she played a key role in the development of Bradford’s NHS interpreting service before taking advantage of a government initiative encouraging people to set up social enterprises from services within NHS organisations, which was the foundation of Enable2. She has since gone on to win several awards, such as Bradford’s “Inspirational Business Woman of the Year”, and see Enable2 named “Business or Technical Innovation of the Year 2017” along with being highly commended by the Telegraph and Argus’ “Bradford Means Business Awards” for “Job Creator of the Year 2019”. Liz’s firm passion for helping the disadvantaged makes her crucial in the constant development of Enable2’s technology to support the provision of an increasingly better and more effective service.
