SHOWCASING LIVERPOOL TO THE WORLD.
WHAT YOU DO
Ambassadors are required to influence the decision making process of a specific event or be the lead on an event staged in Liverpool. To help spread the word and encourage new members we ask members to promote Club Liverpool to their colleagues, mention being a Club Liverpool Ambassador on email sign off and LinkedIn profile and attend networking events.
Our ambassadors symbolise the excellence of Liverpool’s academics and professionals, who by volunteering their time, are invaluable to the economic growth of the city region. Colin Sinclair, Chair, Club Liverpool.
