To help, Liverpool BID Company is holding a Twitter Q&A from 1-2pm Friday, 27 March, with a panel of experts from a range of different specialisms, to answer every question you have.

A lot of announcements have been made in a short period of time, and many firms, large and small, have been focused on securing the immediate future, for both themselves and their employees. There is support available, navigating it might need a little help.

It is our day to day job to provide a platform and a voice for business. We work with businesses across sectors, including professional services, creative and digital, retail, leisure and hospitality, so we have a broad spectrum of experience to draw on.

Business questions can be submitted via Twitter using #AskLiverpoolBID and via email info@liverpoolbidcompany.com and we’ll answer them during the hour. We’ll also write up the conversation and send out via email and on our website. This will be part of a new series of webinars around key topics as business needs change.

Our panel includes;

Bill Addy, Chief Executive of Liverpool BID Company providing a national overview of support

Keith Tully from Begbies Traynor, specialising in business support

Shaun Holland from Liverpool BID Company focusing on operations

Troy Johnson from Griffiths and Armour on insurance

We’ve had direct contact with over 100 businesses in Liverpool in the past week, asking about what they need and what specific support they are looking for. We have been using this to lobby on behalf of business, locally, regionally and nationally.
