Business leaders can hear from an impressive line-up of speakers when the next Sefton Economic Forum takes place this December. 

If you are from a business based in Sefton, you are welcome to attend the Winter Economic Forum and Growth Hub Marketplace when it takes place at The Lake House in Waterloo on Thursday 7th December 2023. 

The forum will provide a platform for topical and interesting presentations from four great speakers: 

  • Christian Spence – Economist
  • Danny Donachie – Business coach and mentor at Embodyism and former Head of Medical Services at Everton Football Club
  • Phil Porter – Chief Executive at Sefton Council 
  • Robin Tudor – Liverpool John Lennon Airport Head of PR and Communications 

The forum will be chaired by Vince Luk, the Director of iFi Audio. 

iIFi Audio designs, develoes and manufactures more than 50 products from its headquarters in Southport. 

As ever the forum will be a relaxed and informal event, with opportunities to network with business owners, leaders and support providers from across Sefton and the Liverpool City Region. 

Afterwards, delegates can browse the Sefton Growth Hub Business marketplace and learn about funded business support, including skills development, digital marketing and many more.
