NEW SEFTON BUSINESS ORGANISATION PLAN B GETS OFF TO A FLYING START October 25th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments NEW SEFTON BUSINESS ORGANISATION PLAN B GETS OFF TO A FLYING START The Leader of Sefton Council helped get Plan B off to a flying start at the launch of the new business organisation last night. It’s formation is a response from businessmen and women across the borough following the collapse of Sefton Chamber of Commerce earlier this month. Formed and chaired by Jonathan Cunningham MBE, Managing Director of STORM Consultancy, the group’s mission is to provide a mature and credible locally-based forum to support business, commerce and the community. Jonathan said: “More than 100 businesses came to the launch event ready to get involved and develop their businesses. “It was great to hear from Sefton Council Leader Cllr Peter Dowd and to also see Southport MP John Pugh at the event. “There is a clear desire from businesspeople from across the borough to get involved in a new organisation which provides not only opportunities for business growth and training but also to give something back to the community. It’s about connecting, inspiring and supporting. “Plan B is a group which is run by, and for, local businesses. More importantly not for profit. This group isn’t just about making connections; it’s about creating significant opportunities for the business community through outstanding events, business development, lobbying and great support.” The group’s next events are a Business Breakfast on 29th October at 7am at the Ramada Hotel in Southport and on 12th November, a Plan B Business Women’s Event, at the Metro Hotel in Portland Street at 6pm.
