Launch Night

There was a huge gathering of business people to witness the launch of the Business Exchange by Warrington & Co on Wednesday 7 March at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. The response was overwhelming and exceeded even our expectations. Indeed there was palpable excitement in the room for the Business Exchange. Over 25 businesses signed up on the night.

The event comprised networking and a presentation demonstrating the Business Exchanges objectives and plans by Steve Park, managing director of Warrington & Co. who followed an introduction by Steven Broomhead, Chairman of Warrington & Co. We also had a message from MP Faisal Rashid relayed by video.

A panel discussion led by former BBC political correspondent Jim Hancock followed a speech by Mike Lomax of Total Steel who expounded his views on the importance of face-to-face networking and the significance of the Warrington Business Exchange. The panel comprised Dave Pickering of Eddie Stobart, Annie Brown of the Park Royal Hotel, Gary Jenkins of No Brainer and Mike Lomax.
