In collaboration with Liverpool Chamber, this strategic partnership is set to redefine the landscape in the Liverpool City Region by creating a cohesive alliance of young professionals across various sectors, businesses and backgrounds with members of the Future Impact Board.

Aimed at championing the perspective of young professionals, The Future Impact Network extends the representative power of the Future Impact Board by building a community of the next generation.

By broadening representation and influencing the narrative from the perspective of a young professional, both The Future Impact Board and Network have a unique opportunity to engage in high-level strategic discussions and make a real impact, ensuring the voice of the future resonates powerfully and decisively.

Through collaboration with the Liverpool City Region, the Future Impact Network supported by the Future Impact Board provides a valued and diverse voice for the younger generation to influence decision-making on a local, national and international scale and is set to inspire positive change.
Liverpool Chamber, with its extensive network of businesses, serves as a crucial partner in this venture through its capability to influence and connect across the Liverpool City Region and ensure that the Future Impact Community is integrated within the institutional ecosystem of the city region.

Paul Cherpeau, chief executive, Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, said:

“As Liverpool Chamber approaches its 175th year as the trusted, authentic partner

for businesses in our city region, our focus is very much on the future of the local business community. Our partnership with the Future Impact Board affirms our commitment to ensuring that Chamber member businesses are able to develop and support their future leaders and enable their voices to be heard and enacted in the present.

“The Future Impact Network will offer a dynamic platform for new ideas, partnerships, learning and growth for participants and an excellent peer network for members to develop within.”

Marc Barlow, member of the Future Impact Board and Project Engineer at Curtins, said: 

“The collaboration between the Future Impact Board and the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce marks a pivotal moment for the young professionals of Liverpool. Together, we are not just redefining the future; we are actively shaping it.

“This partnership is more than an alliance; it’s a commitment to empower the youth of our region, bridging the gap between decision-making levels and the vibrant energy of Liverpool City Region’s youth network”.

Joining the Future Impact Network are ten individuals set to make a significant impact, including Lily Macklin, Lloyds Bank; Jake Wilson, Oriel Studios; Sian Opie, K2 Architects; Kathy McQuillan, Morecrofts Solicitors; Chelsea Holman, DSG; James Jefferies, RSM; Megan Parry, Liverpool One; Jaime Stanton, Morgan Sindall; Luke Latham, Warwick Developments; and Adam Birch, Empire Theatre.
