The Harlow Ambassadors came together at the historic Harlow Study Centre on 23 May for the latest Ambassador Meeting.

Ambassadors meet quarterly in some of the town’s most interesting venues to hear about Harlow’s exciting projects, people and potential.

The focus was on business in Harlow, as the Ambassadors heard from:

  • Leonie Tipton of the global company Arrow Electronics. Arrow has a UK base in Kao Park, Harlow and heritage with the town stretching back over 60 years.   Whether it’s amazing or mundane, something you’ve never seen before or the things you can’t live without – if it takes a charge or sends a signal, chances are Arrow was part of building it. By the time we’ve had our morning coffee, it’s likely that we’ve interacted with something made by Arrow at least five times.
  • Simon Plumb, Manager of the Water Gardens Shopping Centre, who spoke about busting the myths of Harlow Town Centre. Overall the Town Centre is actually busier and performing better than other similar centres in the region. Its success, Simon explained, is down to its evolution.

The Ambassadors Programme is an opportunity for businesses of all sizes to get involved promoting Harlow. If you would like to be an Ambassador or would like more information email discoverharlow@harlow.gov.uk
