Liverpool & Sefton Chamber Celebrates Excellence in Business

Showcasing the very best of local business at our Annual Dinner and Awards

The Chamber’s Annual Dinner and Awards last night provided a snapshot of some of the amazing achievements of our city region business community. Innovation, creativity, ethical and sustainable growth and a real commitment to staff health and wellbeing, were all celebrated by over 300 guests at the magnificent Rum Warehouse.

Sponsored by SP Energy Networks and hosted by Peter McDowall from LFC TV, we had an inspirational presentation with a distinctly local flavour from our keynote speaker, Mike Moran MBE.

Paul Cherpeau, CEO of the Chamber said: “We have a responsibility to celebrate the excellence in business that exists in our city. Despite the increased political rhetoric criticising business, our local economy thrives by building upon their success in providing wealth, jobs, opportunity and social value.”

Paul also announced that the Chamber will be signing the Armed Forces Covenant, to reassert its commitment to servicemen and women, promoting the value of their skills, talent and experience within the businesses community, adding: “I’m personally proud that the Chamber can boast of a history such as ours but more pleased that we have the opportunity to continue to contribute and serve our business community in the 21st century. Our dinner gave us the opportunity to reassert this purpose and we have so much to look forward to achieving together in 2019”

The quality of award applications this year was exceptionally high, particularly so in the Local Hero category where we had two winners! Congratulations to our amazing winners and to all our very worthy nominees. A full list of winners is below.

The celebrations continued courtesy of our friends at The Richmond in Hatton Garden.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors as well as our event partners including Antionio Franco Photography, The Big Event Group, Fisher AV, The Know Group, Meet & Potato, The Richmond Hotel, RUM Warehouse and the Titanic Hotel Liverpool.

Most of all however, we would like to thank all those who attended for making this a celebration of local business to remember!
