Introduce yourself

Lee Stanley, Head of Business Development, Liverpool and Sefton Chambers of Commerce.

I am very much looking forward to meeting our members over the coming weeks and months. I am excited at the prospect of delivering a first class service for existing members, and welcoming new opportunities to work with businesses in our area. I want the Chamber to be recognised as a key partner to all, and for us to be admired for having positive and successful impacts on our clients.

What do you want to achieve in your new role with the Chamber?

I want to use my experience from my previous roles to bring some fresh ideas to the table. I want to focus on developing our membership offers to provide a real tangible return on the investment to our partners.  My ambition is to contribute to the great work that the team already provides here at the Chamber, and to become more visible to members. I am looking forward to the start of many meaningful dialogues with all I meet, to help shape the exciting future ahead.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

I have two: to carry out a random act of kindness everyday – this will benefit yourself and the community that you live in; and have as much fun as you can!

Where would we find you on your day off?

As a proud father, you will find me spending time with my family, watching them achieve through sport, education and having fun!

Who is your role model in business?

Anyone that starts their own business is a role model. To pick one, would be Richard Branson - The Virgin Group now controls over 400 companies, so is doing something right.

What is the best advice you have been given in your career?

I have been given lots of great advice over the years. One I always reflect on is “Every person you meet is a potential door to a new opportunity” - personally and professionally.

Why choose Liverpool City Region?       

I have always been extremely proud and passionate about being born and raised in Liverpool. I see working for the Chamber as an opportunity to contribute to the ongoing success of the region. The future of Liverpool is bright, and it is a great place to work with the people to match too!

What would you like to see improve or develop in your sector?

Something which I have always thought is valuable, and I believe needs to be done more, is the sharing of best practice and ideas. I hope my appointment at the Liverpool Chamber can enable me to work with the whole of the British network to bring a meaningful service and membership out to clients and customers.
