Chamber Dinner Celebrates Responsible Business

Fri, November 3rd, 2017

Last night’s Annual Dinner and Awards evening, Sponsored by SP Energy Networks

Last night’s Annual Dinner and Awards evening, sponsored by SP Energy Networks, was a fantastic celebration of responsible business in the City Region. It was brilliant to welcome so many of our colleagues from across our businesses to enjoy the evening with us.

We were delighted to hear from the Chairman of the John Lewis Partnership, Sir Charlie Mayfield, who spoke passionately about the ‘Productivity Problem’. Sir Charlie discussed the responsibility of businesses in the UK to create the value, capital and wage growth for citizens in our country, to avoid a return to Victorian-era reductions in living standards. The prevailing ‘good’ of business, as articulated by Sir Charlie, was an uplifting and inspirational centrepiece for our evening.

Huge congratulations to our award nominees and winners:

• Responsible Business Award (Large) – Peel Land & Property
• Responsible Business Award (Small/Medium) – Homecarers Liverpool
• Environmental Impact Award – LCR Bus Alliance & Emmaus
• Empowering People & Community Impact Award – The Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust
• Local Hero Award – Paul Dixon (Volunteer, The Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust)

We’re incredibly appreciative to all of our members and sponsors – SP Energy Networks, BT Local Business and Liverpool John Lennon Airport – as well as PMC for their support and our event partners Verb Marketing, Fisher AV, RUM Warehouse, Alma de Cuba, Antonio Franco and Archbishop Blanch School, for their contributions to making the event such a success.

We’ll have our event report and photographs online next week.
