Joseph Cooksey biography
I joined Barclays as a personal banker in 2007 becoming a branch manager in 2008. After 5 years in branch management I was fortunate to be able to pursue my passion in digital technology. In April 2013 I moved into the Strategic Transformation team in Barclays. I was one of the 18 founding members of the Digital Eagles originally helping staff embrace the new technology that Barclays was developing. After 18 months growing the Digital Eagles in the retail bank I started a project working with businesses. As a Business Digital Eagle I am passionate about helping customers grow and protect their businesses online. I have a foundation degree in Digital Marketing and the Google Squared diploma. I also work using insight from our fraud team to help customers understand the importance of Cyber Security and the steps that they can take to protect themselves.

We had an excellent breakfast meeting on Wednesday 6th April with an extremely interesting talk by Debbie Lorimer of South Norfolk Council detailing the council's profit-making enterprises to counteract the cut in central government budgets. You would be amazed! It was wonderful to see some new faces there.
at the Swan Hotel, Harleston on 3rd March. We had an excellent breakfast with a debate as to whether we thought Britain should stay in or leave the European Union. Very interesting. Maybe we should do that again sometime!
The significant national and international change that the next 25 years will bring will inevitably affect market towns like Harleston and our village communities.

We have a very special breakfast meeting on 7th October 2015 at The Swan Hotel, Harleston, 7.30 - 9.00am, when we will be holding a Waveney-wide business forum event.
A team from Diss is coming to talk about their project to renovate and rejuvenate the Diss Heritage Triangle, refurbish the Corn Hall and to make Diss Mere even more of a feature. David Case (Trustee), Deborah Sarson (Diss Town Clerk) and Sheila King (Project Manager) will be explaining their project and how it evolved.
It's a fascinating presentation which demonstrates just how much people working together can achieve in their local communities and we felt that it was really important to open this up to fellow business groups so they too could share in the enthusiasm and vision that David Case and his team have shown. If it can be achieved in Diss, it can be achieved in other communities.
It will also be a great opportunity to network.
If you would like to book your place for breakfast, please click here for the booking form. There is a choice of full English, continental or vegetarian breakfast for £9.00. Bookings must be received by Friday 25th September please. Breakfasts can be paid for on the day.
