Echo and Business Post Regional Business Awards
Important Announcement about the 2020 awards
As you would expect we have been keeping a close eye on the latest Government advice around the Covid-19 pandemic.
Although at this stage there is no specific advice around the return of events, after consultation with the event sponsors we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the ECHO & Business Post Regional Business Awards 2020.
Our decision has been driven by our primary concern for the health and safety of our employees and all businesses involved, and also the uncertainty about the date when we will be able to meet in person again for the judges site visits and hold a public gathering.
We plan to launch the 2021 awards in the new year.
We are really disappointed to not be able to host the awards this year but I’m sure you will agree that this is the right course of action given the circumstances.

Liverpool John Moores University - Liverpool Business School
Liverpool Business School is a Faculty within Liverpool John Moores University and a provider of business education for over 30 years. As part of a modern civic university, we seek to make a significant impact to growth in the Liverpool city region and beyond.
Our corporate development portfolio recognises the impact that trained managers have on transforming business performance, and works across sectors and organisations to develop leaders and managers.
We believe the Government apprenticeship scheme is an opportunity to enable this transformation and have designed a range of flexible leadership and management programmes, mapped to the apprenticeship standards. The courses enable businesses to meet organisational training needs and staff to realise their potential, for those new to managing, right through to senior managers and leaders. We encourage businesses to use their apprenticeship levy to develop great leaders, who will help to lead change in their organisation.
We support businesses in an increasingly digital world by providing courses and graduates with the digital skills and knowledge required by all sectors. Our academic research strives to help fill knowledge gaps in the area of digital technology through research activity undertaken by our Digital Sciences Centre and Advanced Digital Research Group.
By understanding partner organisations, and engineering flexibility into the support we provide, we can help businesses grow. Through bespoke programmes and interventions built around individual businesses and employees, the Liverpool Business School will create the next generation of leaders, and assist in driving economic development right across the Liverpool City Region.
