Knowsley Ambassadors events are a chance to find out what’s happening in various industry sectors in the area, network, and learn more about relevant opportunities.
Tuesday, 19 September, 8am-10am
For our next Knowsley Ambassadors’ meeting we are delighted to be welcoming the new Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram. Elected in June this year, Steve is responsible for setting out a strategy for growing the regional economy and will be taking charge of more than £900 million extra funding over the next 30 years.
This event is a great opportunity for Knowsley Ambassadors to hear direct from Steve about his priorities and ambition for the region and of course where he sees Knowsley within that. Born in Kirkby, Steve is sure to have his own personal perspective on Knowsley and be in a great position to talk more about future of the area as a whole.
In addition to sharing his vision, Steve is also keen to hear the views of the public and private sector here in Knowsley and there will be an opportunity for questions as part of the event.
This is an exciting opportunity for Knowsley Ambassadors and you are urged to book your place at this event as early as possible as places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please email email@example.com or call Paul Morris on 0151 443 5802 to secure your place.
The event will be held in the stunning surroundings of the State Dining Room at Knowsley Hall and breakfast will be available on arrival during the networking session.
