whizz_carMerseyside businesses can avoid the unnecessary costs and paperwork associated with running staff pool cars by taking out a corporate membership with WhizzGo.

WhizzGo is a pay-by-the-hour car club, which gives the employees of its corporate members instant access to a pool of low-emission cars. Staff of member organisations can pick up a car from one of four locations in Liverpool city centre when they want the convenience of a car.

Councillor Peter Millea, Liverpool City Council Executive Member, said: “Joining a car club is a good business alternative to owning company pool cars, especially for businesses based in the city centre.

“Becoming a member can help organisations to cut costs and eliminate the paperwork associated with corporate car ownership. And what’s more, by encouraging staff to make TravelWise choices such as cycling, walking, taking public transport or car sharing, businesses can do their bit to reduce the number of cars on the road, which is good for the environment too!”

Membership is easy and can be tailored to suit the individual needs of businesses. Why not try a no obligation trial to see how much your business can save?

“A Single Market for the 21st Century”: Challenges and Perspectives May 7, 2009

Posted by liverpoolchamber in Business.
add a comment

The Liverpool Law School is organising a conference exploring the Commission’s 2007 Single Market Review.

The conference will be held on Thursday 25th June 2009 at the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool (Monarchs Quay, Liverpool Waterfront).

The conference seeks to deliberate critically upon some of the major issues identified in the Commission Review: for example, how cross border trade can be reconciled with environmental concerns about issues such as “food miles”; how the role of collective labour organisations can be adapted to the demands of the Single Market; how to secure more effective protection for consumers faced with the growing complexity of international trading relationships; the need for reform of banking regulation in the light of the current credit crisis, and indeed the capacity of Single Market to resist protectionist pressures in the face of the global economic downturn; and how to promote the European version of market integration as a “global brand”.

Speakers, discussants and chairs include: Jörgen Holmquist (European Commission); Catherine Barnard (University of Cambridge); Niamh Nic Shuibhne (University of Edinburgh); Geert van Calster (University of Leuven); Joanne Scott (University College London); Ioannis Lianos (University College London); Dermot Cahill (University of Bangor); Thomas Ackermann (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg); Anu Arora (University of Liverpool); Marise Cremona (European University Institute); Luigi Daniele (University of Rome “Tor Vergata”); Sacha Prechal (University of Utrecht); Jukka Snell (University of Swansea); Eleanor Spaventa (Durham University).

The conference is generously sponsored by the European Commission Representation in the United Kingdom.

The provisional programme, conference booking form and further information are all available at the online here.

Please note that places are limited and registration will be on a first-come-first-serve basis (further booking requests will be held on stand-by in the event of cancellations).  For further information about the conference, please contact Professor Michael Dougan (m.dougan@liv.ac.uk) or Dr Arianna Andreangeli (A.Andreangeli@liverpool.ac.uk).

Common Sense Over Car Parking? March 5, 2009

parked_carsLiverpool Chamber welcomes the City Council’s decision to suspend the implementation of extended car parking charges for the city centre, pending an inquiry.

The idea is simply madness and will do nothing but harm to the evening and night time economies of Liverpool city centre. We have opposed the proposal from the start, and encourage all our members and readers to do the same.

The decision has still to be finalised, so it’s important to keep up the pressure.

You can do this by:

And if anyone from the City Council would like us to take part in the inquiry, just email Jack Stopforth, our chief exec, to let us know where and when.

Culture Secretary Hails Liverpool’s Creative Apprenticeships February 27, 2009

Culture Secretary Andy Burnham

Culture Secretary Andy Burnham

The Culture Secretary Andy Burnham met with Liverpool’s leading cultural organisations on Thursday, 26th February. Speaking at the World Museum during an evening reception, Mr. Burnham said that apprenticeships provided a flexible, practical approach to building a new economy rooted in creativity and innovation.

As an English Language graduate, Burnham recalled how difficult it had been to secure creative employment in journalism – an effort which saw him working for long hours with no pay.

“No one should have to go through this kind of thing; a situation where success depends on ‘knowing somebody’ in the field or working as an intern for no money. Creative Apprenticeships offer a structured route for young people to develop their artistic talents and aspirations.” He highlighted that at a time of ‘fundamental change’ in the global economy, Britain needed to build on its cultural strengths, particularly as global demand for digital content in English is set to grow.

Apprenticeships are a throwback to the nineteenth century, where young people aspiring to learn a skill worked and trained with an employer until they gained proficiency in their chosen trade.

Andrea Nixon, Executive Director at Tate Liverpool, praised the Tate’s Creative Apprenticeship team who currently offer ten apprenticeships at their Albert Dock gallery. The Tate’s Community Arts Pathway took three years to develop and aims to widen access to the arts’ sector for talented people across the region. Pulling no punches, Nixon urged the Culture Secretary to provide much needed cash to support wages for Apprentices.

An insight into the possibilities offered by Apprenticeships was also canvassed by Andy Rooley, Director of the Sage Gateshead music centre on Tyneside, North-East England. By providing a viable alternative for those who had chosen not to go to university, he remarked that early training on the job fed directly in to the specialist approach and skills required by many cultural organisations.
