Lin Boyd, founder of the Business Development Club and co-director of Switch Onto Business, commented: “This is a massive opportunity to demonstrate the power of collaboration. Businesses are coming together to utilise their skills, products and services, and the event is a platform to showcase. The ceremony will demonstrate how we can create opportunities for new and existing businesses within the City Region, utilising services such as event planning, production, photography, PR and offering experience to students and graduates – our future talent. It will be a fabulous evening of celebration and acknowledgement, and it will showcase Liverpool and the talent within.”

Jackie Lee, co-director of Switch Onto Business and partner of the Business Development Club, added: “This is what Switch Onto Business is all about: collaboration, building relationships, showcasing and celebrating success. Claire House is our nominated charity, and we are so pleased to be able to support them in this way. Here’s to a fabulous event!”

Yvonne Bennett, director at Wedding Planners Guild UK, said: "I am thrilled to be working with SOTB on this event. It will be such a prestigious event, and a great chance to recognise the efforts of so many people. The event will create plenty of opportunities for new businesses, and it will raise plenty of funds for Claire House. I'm really looking forward to this awards evening!"

Beth Pochin, Merseyside Corporate Fundraiser at Claire House Children’s Hospice, added: "We are so thrilled to be the chosen charity for this special awards ceremony. It means so much to everyone at Claire House to receive support from the amazing team at SOTB, and we can’t wait to celebrate the achievements of lots of remarkable local businesses and entrepreneurs on the night."
