The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership and Marketing Lancashire are working to create The Lancashire Story - a powerful economic narrative to promote a shared sense of vision to showcase why Lancashire is THE place to do business.
They are seeking opinions and feedback from local businesses, to help develop this powerful story together and are keen to hear your thoughts on a range of themes.
Discover everything you need to know in order to start or grow your own business at West Lancashire’s largest business support event.
On Thursday 29 January from 4-8pm, West Lancashire Investment Centre will be hosting ‘Let’s Talk Start Up and Growth,’ a free interactive event aimed at anyone thinking about starting or expanding a business in West Lancashire.
West Lancashire Investment Centre (WLIC) is going from strength to strength as it celebrates 10 years of helping firms do business.
The Centre, by Junction 4 of the M58 in Skelmersdale, which provides prestigious office accommodation, conference and meeting room facilities as well as an on-site café, was recently a finalist in the Conference / Meeting Venue category of the Lancashire Tourism Awards.
All 43 office suites are now occupied, the last incubator unit having been let to new tenants in October.
The Investment Centre is proving once again to be a great place for business as a national company relocates an important part of its operations there. Specsavers has taken two large suites at the centre in Skelmersdale for its 28-strong team of professional recruitment staff.
The West Lancashire Investment Centre is providing a platform for businesses to expand and take on extra staff. Since the start of 2013, the centre’s facilities have been very much in demand as it has welcomed seven new tenants. Existing tenant Cotopaxi Energy has tripled the size of their office space and taken on eight new staff to grow from 12 to 20 employees.
Football is a multi-million pound business, as illustrated by the huge transfer fees football clubs have recently paid for the services of Gareth Bale, Marouane Fellaini and other top players.
The chief executive of Everton Football Club Robert Elstone will join the chief executive of Downtown in Business Frank McKenna to discuss the business of football at the next West Lancashire Enterprise Forum later this month.
