Businesses with connections to Skelmersdale can hear from inspirational local guest speakers about their business success stories and meet other business leaders at the next Skelmersdale Ambassadors business breakfast event.

Lancashire Manor Hotel is the venue for the next business breakfast on Wednesday 11 October, from 7.45am to 9.30am.

As well as the opportunity to network, speakers in the morning will be Harry Hill, CEO of Graylaw Freight; Steve Jones, Skelmersdale Place Board, and social entrepreneurs Maureen Fazal and Paula Gamester.

Mr Hill said: "Since joining the Skelmersdale Ambassadors network in 2016, we find these events informative and inspiring as well as an opportunity to network and to find out who our neighbouring businesses are and what they do.  It is a privilege to have been invited by the Skelmersdale Place Board to speak at their next event. I will be talking about the story of Graylaw Freight, how committed we are to Skelmersdale and how being located here has played a part in its success.”

This event is FREE to attend, however booking is required in advance to secure your place at these popular events.  To find out more, please email lets.talk or call the Council’s Economic Regeneration Team on 01695 712692.

Skelmersdale Ambassadors act as powerful advocates to influence, attract investment and encourage business growth. Ambassadors will be the first to know about exciting opportunities and developments in the local economy. They will have access to the Skelmersdale Storybook, artwork, images and many other marketing materials to help them promote their business and Skelmersdale, as well as increasing their network of contacts.

Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council and for portfolio holder for Economic Regeneration, said: “The Skelmersdale Ambassadors Network is going from strength to strength and members are finding being part of the group really useful.  If you run a business in Skelmersdale and haven’t signed up for the network, then I would encourage you to come along to the next breakfast event and join the network."

If you are unable to attend the event you can still find out about becoming a Skelmersdale Ambassador at Skelmersdale Ambassadors.
