26/04/2021- 24 HOURS TO REGISTER – The Good Business Festival presents Change Business for Good

The Good Business Festival team are back – in person – and if you live in the LIVERPOOL CITY REGION they want YOU to be part of their launch event!

On 28 April,  they are hosting a free event taking place at the ACC Liverpool as part of the government’s programme to build back from the pandemic.   Join them for a taster of all the ingredients of The Good Business Festival squeezed into one brilliant afternoon and evening.. ahead of the 3 day Festival in July.

 A chance to be inspired and be challenged. And a chance to spend time with business friends and make new ones for the first time in over a year. A chance to unwind with drinks, delicious home-baked pies. And at the end of the day, a chance to have a really good laugh. Because let’s face it, it’s 2021 and we all need one. 

 Once inside the event there will be no requirement to wear a face covering or practice social distancing (unless you prefer otherwise) . And we promise you won’t hear the words “You’re on mute”!

 In typical TGBF style, the event will bring together big thinkers from across politics, culture and business with a stellar line up!
