Advancing your career or business without the right connections can be a frustrating, and sometimes even lonely, journey. You might see other people or businesses make the moves you want to make and feel like you deserve more.
Joining Professional Liverpool brings you into a community of people who believe in supporting each other, making introductions and sharing best practice. We come together to learn, connect, belong and grow - all while contributing to the economic success of the City Region.
Expand your network
Develop your business and grow your connections with fellow professionals at regular networking events that feature industry trends, best practices, business advice and more.
Generate new business opportunities
Through events and introductions, there are opportunities to connect with people who may need what you offer.
Learn and grow
Influential guest speakers are invited to events to talk about business related issues and share their experiences, so you can learn new skills and develop your career and business.
You can apply your learnings to your CPD portfolio, no matter with which Professional institute you are affiliated. Read more here.
As an organisation, we represent the interests of members on a local, regional and national level, working with like-minded organisations such as local authorities, the LCR Combined Authority and Metro Mayor, and the City Region's Universities, to promote economic growth.
Through strategic alliances with partners, we promote joint events and shared research projects as well as collaborating to attract inward investment to the city region.
Within the member community are industry specific groups that represent major sectors. Each one regularly publishes research and information relating to their areas of expertise providing insight into and addressing issues within growth sectors in the LCR.
Currently there are groups covering Corporate Finance, Private Client / Wealth Management, Property, Development and Regeneration, Healthcare, Marketing and Communications and Creative and Digital.
By joining these groups, members have the opportunity to apply their skills and experience to key issues, changes, challenges and opportunities affecting the City Region and its businesses
