10ksb alumni in liverpool

23 July 2014

Over 50 Midlands alumni of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme  joined their counterparts from the North West, Yorkshire and London to enjoy a day of networking and workshops, followed by a fantastic evening wining and dining in the unique surroundings of the Lutyens Crypt underneath Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. 


Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme alumni from the Midlands provided workshops and provocateur sessions, getting groups of people discussing particular business challenges and specific issues. Sarah Crawley (iSE), Daniella Genas (Asprie4u), Julie Summerrell (TR Fleet) and Jim Griffin (Auto Insulations) all hosted workshops which were well attended by alumni from all 4 regions and delegates also heard an entertaining interview with Steve O’Connor, CEO, Stobart Group. 

Networking has been cited as the key take-away from the event, especially around the connections that individuals have made that will have direct and positive impacts on their businesses. This is as customers, suppliers, joint ventures, referrals and as mentors and advisors – proving the value of the national and regional alumni network. 

"Great to have all the Alumni together. It makes me feel like I am part of something special." 

"It was a fantastic event - so much energy in the room, so much inspiration, I came away energised and excited about opportunities, Thank you so much for the opportunity." 

"Great event. Really good to have a mixture of business and pleasure with like minded people whom I felt I could trust."
