Blenheim Report

The Blenheim economic impact analysis 2019/2020 undertaken by Oxford Brookes Business School has just been released.

Dr Sara Le Roux, Programme Lead in Economics at the Business School said:

We have worked alongside Blenheim for a fourth consecutive year to measure their Economic Impact on the local Oxfordshire and wider UK economy. Over this period, our partnership with Blenheim has grown stronger and with greater insight into the scope of their operations, we believe we have helped them to have an in-depth understanding of the impact of their activities. Working with Blenheim has enhanced our technical expertise, enabling us to capture the breadth and depth of an organisations' economic impact. The Technical Reports we prepare for Blenheim provide a “benchmark” against which changes in impact can be measured and form a cornerstone of Blenheim's strategic developments.

Professor Tim Vorley, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean commented:

We are an engaged Business School, working with a range of partners nationally and regionally. This is fantastic example of how Sara and colleagues at Oxford Brookes Business School are working collaboratively withBlenheim to understand their economic impact.
