Livercool22 celebrates the best business personalities from across the city

Downtown in Business (DIB) Liverpool celebrated the best business leaders from across the Liverpool City Region at the Livercool Awards 2022, sponsored by Moore Media on Thursday 24th November 2022.

Celebrating the twentieth iteration of the gala awards dinner, Livercool highlights DIB’s ethos of ‘work hard, play hard’ celebrating the people from our city who have made a significant contribution to economic growth.

Over 300 of the city’s leading business personalities gathered at the Crowne Plaza Liverpool City Centre to recognise the achievements of the city’s leading entrepreneurs and business leaders.

To celebrate twenty years of the Livercool Awards, Downtown in Business CEO and Group Chairman, Frank McKenna started the evening by acknowledging several DIB Ambassadors, Peter Price, Dougal Paver from Merrion Strategy and Jayne Moore from Moore Media who have been long term advocates of Downtown in Business.

Tony McDonnell from Davies Partnership took home the big prize on the evening as he scooped the Business Personality of the Year 2022 award, Simon Krol from Krol Corlett took home the Property Personality of the Year 2022 and Ellis Barrie from Lerpwl lifted the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award 2022.

Downtown in Business also celebrated the achievements of Jay Hynd from the Guide and Sophie Park from Hybrid-Tec as they were award the CEO Award 2022 and Chair Award 2022 respectively.

Downtown Boss, Frank McKenna commented; “Once again the great and the good of the Liverpool business community have turned out for the annual celebration that is Livercool. It was amazing to see the incredible passion and talent on display in the room, showing that whatever challenges the city may be facing at moment, the business community in the city is as determined and innovative as ever. A massive congratulations to all the deserved winners for their hard work and dedication over not just the last 12 months, but the challenging last few years too.

“I’m delighted that as we celebrated twenty years of the Livercool Awards, it was fitting that Moore Media, a fantastic Liverpool success story celebrating its tenth year in business, was the headline sponsor for this year’s awards. I’d like to extend my personal thanks to Jayne and the team not only for sponsoring Livercool22, but for all the support they have given to DIB over the years. I’d also like to thank The Guide Liverpool, who were our Media Partners for Livercool22 and all our other sponsors for the evening.

“Finally, I’d like to thank everyone who has been to or supported Downtown in Business and the Livercool Awards over the past twenty years. It has been fantastic to celebrate and acknowledge the many incredible businesses leaders over the years.”

Jayne Moore from Livercool22 headline sponsor commented; “We continue to be a proud partner of Downtown and have always been grateful for the support that Frank and his team have given us during our first ten years. It felt like the perfect time to sponsor Livercool22 to thank Downtown for its unrelenting support and partnership over the years.

“It was an incredible evening as we have come to expect from Downtown, and an opportunity to applaud the individuals in our city’s business community who have really shone in the last 12 months. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!

“For Moore Media, we are excited about the next ten years, with plans to open a Birmingham office and the development of our own training arm, which will support the next generation of marketing and PR experts across Liverpool City Region. This follows the success of our work with I Am Moore through the DWP’s Kickstart, where we created meaningful employment for almost 250 young people.”
