CITY LEADERS URGE PROFESSIONALS TO ‘ACCELERATE’ WITH JCI‏

At JCI Liverpool, we were keen to develop initiatives around Accelerate 2013, the inaugural festival for high growth businesses. We therefore teamed up with  leading representatives from business and politics, including David Wareing, Senior Partner at Hill Dickinson, Cllr Nick Small and the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Gary Millar, in order to organise an event to be held on the 26 June at Hill Dickinson’s office at No 1 St Paul’s Square.

JCI Liverpool created a diverse programme of activity that has the clear objective of inspiring the business leaders of tomorrow. We had a dynamic range of speakers tol encourage delegates to develop strategies for growth. To include information on unlocking your potential by addressing training needs, managing stress, boosting your business performance through an effective social media strategy and making the most of the opportunities the UK has to offer.

Members of JCI Liverpool teamed up with some of Liverpool’s business leaders and delivered presentations on the event’s themes. So it’s a great way to learn and empower young businesses. In the end, it was John Haynes and Michelle Fellowes who won JCI Liverpool’s “Public Speaking Team” award.
