We've launched our fantastic fourth edition!

What a few weeks it’s been!

On Thursday 4th February we held our launch event for Edition 4 of Switch on to Business (download now!) at Fazenda in Liverpool.

It was a brilliant night, and the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the magazine showed how everyone’s efforts have truly paid off.

In this edition we have featured the likes of Northern Vision, Launch 22’s scholarship programme, and the CEO of Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Andrew Cornish. We showcased another two members from the New Business Development Club (Wedding Planners Guild UK and Caleidoscope Photography) and introduced our fabulous new feature, ‘Inspirational Liverpool’.

Inspirational Liverpool is about celebrating and recognising individual achievements in all walks of life – not just business.

I believe that we should always look to promote the amazing stories the people of Liverpool and its surrounding areas have to offer, which is what Inspirational Liverpool is all about.

If you know of someone who deserves to be featured in future editions, please drop us an email (info@switchontobusiness.co.uk).

We also focused our efforts upon our newly named section, ‘Future Talent’ (previously known as ‘Education’). With the help of Miles Dove, Amy Wilson and Aadrienne Gowns, students from Liverpool Hope and the University of Liverpool, we were able to show off the achievements of the young people who are connected to the region in someway or another.

I actually wrote my own piece in this section which reflected upon my experience as a student in Liverpool (p. 54) between 2011 and 2014.

Edition 4 also has an incredibly strong Hospitality and Arts section, so make sure you have a look as you will not be disappointed (pages 69 and 77 respectively).

I strongly believe that Switch on to Business is a brilliant platform for businesses, individuals and the younger generation to gain recognition and showcase their achievements. The companies and people we work with are all fabulous, and deserve to be celebrated.

Anyway, enough from me – why don’t you have a look for yourself? Keep contacting us with your feedback, comments or ideas. Maybe you have a great idea for a feature or have a story to tell? Let us know!  

Thank you!
