Livercool Business Awards


I experienced another great celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit that lives in Liverpool at last nights Downtown’s Livercool Business Awards. It was a packed house, great laugh, met many old mates as well as new contacts.

If the other major cities in the UK could replicate this energy…..then growth would most certainly follow. Celebrate success, acknowledge the winners, give recognition to those who are making a difference – turn off the news and lets stop conditioning our minds to doom and gloom. From what I saw last night there are some fantastic things going on in Liverpool and the North.

A great example of public and private sector working together for the benefit of the City and its people and employers – top stuff.

Well done Frank!


Liverpool cruise liner – its got to happen!


I have written about this before, to be honest I am really puzzled why Southampton have such a big problem and why are they are demanding the Council pays back the European aid? It’s about UK Plc ! Southampton have benefitted from the draw and pull of the South East, more specifically London, is this not an unfair advantage? My message is keep going Joe Anderson and make sure this happens for the North, the impact could be massive for the economy. Success for Liverpool will breed more high growth businesses, create more new starts and help existing pubs, restaurants, clubs and the broader tourism sector.

It seems like a bit of a no brainer to me.
