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.
