A newly established North West networking group, Future Boss Club, marked its arrival with an exclusive launch event in Liverpool last week.
The launch event welcomed both rising talent and decision makers to explore the forward-thinking concept. Alongside the networking opportunities, guests were treated to a trio of inspirational talks from Chair of Future Boss Club Rebecca Keegan, Chief Executive of The Liverpool Knowledge Quarter Colin Sinclair and Chief Executive of The Women’s Organisation Maggie O'Carroll.
More than £1,000 was raised when individuals from law firm Brabners took part in a sponsored sleep out in aid of the homeless charity Crisis.
Several people at the firm agreed to give up their time (and their warm beds) to sleep-out in a basement car park in Manchester.
Commercial law firm Brabners has strengthened its commercial, intellectual property and sports practices with three new hires.
Victoria Trigwell joins the firm’s commercial and intellectual property team as an associate, alongside intellectual property and trademark administrator Ioana Ghiurco. Andrew McGregor has been hired as an associate in the sports practice.
Brabners is pleased to welcome the formal launch of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, a £400 million government backed fund, established to provide finance to SMEs located in the North of England.
