Keith Rundle Profile

City Centre BID Development Manager – Keith Rundle

Keith oversees the City Centre Business Improvement District (BID). Project which is engaging businesses in identifying and then funding those improvements to deliver clear benefits.

He is working with over 900 businesses and organisations across Bristol’s city centre.

These businesses range across all sectors and sizes from education through healthcare, visitor, entertainment and retail economies to professional services, public sector and creative industries.

This ambitious project will gather the views and needs of businesses and then craft those into a Business Plan. The Business Plan will have clear projects and initiatives to deliver services and initiatives over and above those provided by the council and the police.

The BID will create a safer, more welcoming, better promoted and connected city that helps businesses to thrive and maintains Bristol’s position amongst the most highly rated of all UK cities.

The BID is currently completing its consultation stage and will go to a ballot of all businesses on 5th July 2017.

City Centre BID Development Assistant - Pauline Gendre

How long have you been with Destination Bristol and what do you do?

In 2014 I joined Destination Bristol for an internship at the Bristol Tourist Information Centre. During this time, I was promoting the city and fell in love with Bristol’s architecture and life and decided to stay. 

4 months ago I was appointed as the new BID Assistant. Keith and I work closely together on the Business Improvement District project for Bristol’s city centre. I strongly believe in Bristol's potential. I work with and for the businesses within the BID area to improve the city environment and attractiveness.

Do you have a typical day?

Never, tasks change every day. I am in charge of typical duties such as our Radio Net System, vacant shops initiative and social media. I have regular face to face meetings with businesses. Each day is different but every day is challenging and fulfilling.
