“F**k Business?” No. We must celebrate and cherish its contribution.

The Foreign Secretary may appear to have a problem with business with his alleged expletive outburst this week but, as the International Business Festival comes to a close, we can reflect with pride on the diversity, entrepreneurship and innovation of British businesses showcased over the last 3 weeks here in Liverpool.

Covering a range of themes including culture and sport, cities and future transport, sustainable energy, manufacturing, creative and health, it demonstrated the insatiable contribution that businesses of all shapes, sizes and types makes at a social and cultural level as well as to the economy.

It is in this spirit that the Chamber’s Annual Dinner Awards on Thursday 1st November will once again recognise those businesses and individuals who are driving forward the responsible business agenda across the Liverpool City Region.

We are also recognising the city region’s most successful Exporter of the Year to acknowledge the economic contribution made by local businesses to the national economy as well as within the city region itself. Given our burgeoning digital and technology sectors we are also introducing an award for Digital and Technology to highlight local talent, innovation and success.

We will also celebrate individual achievements across all of our business community in our Local Hero Award, once again recognising those individuals whose actions often go unnoticed but whose enthusiasm, passion and tenacity make things happen!

The Awards will be presented at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner on Thursday 1 November at The Rum Warehouse and we look forward to toasting the contribution of businesses that ensure that in Liverpool every day can be a festival of business.

Awards and event booking details will be released next week but in the meantime if you have any queries contact the team at events@liverpoolchamber.org.uk
