Bijal Ladva is a director of the Grantham opticians, in the Isaac Newton Centre, but it is as chairman of the Grantham Business Club that he is best known.
He chairs the club’s regular meetings and champions its aim of celebrating local businesses in the town.
In his work as chairman, Bijal is regularly called upon by the Journal to comment on reports involving the business community and local economy.
As such, he was included in a panel at the Journal’s Question Time event last August, debating hot topics like traffic congestion and the town’s economy.
In addition, Bijal was a mentor in the Journal Local Business Accelerators scheme, which offered new businesses the chance to win exposure and guidance in order to grow their businesses.
Bijal is a true champion of business in Grantham.
