New networking opportunities with JCI in Liverpool JCI Liverpool has appointed a new Social Director, Kartik Rajput (Business Specialist at HSBC), who is working together with fellow Director Emma Turner (HR Business Partner at the NHS) organising networking opportunities for JCI members in Liverpool.
One of the first steps taken by the new social team was to set up regular informal networking events. These “after work drinks” usually take place on the last Thursday of each month, from 6pm. The first event took place on 25 October at Leaf on Bold Street, Liverpool (see photographs below), and the next one is scheduled for 29 November 2012. Those wishing to attend can sign up for the events, athttp://liverpoolnetworking.eventbrite.com.
JCI Liverpool council members exhanging ideas with young professional over drinks
Kai Graf von Pahlen (President at JCI Liverpool and Solicitor at Hill Dickinson) said, “The event on 25 October was well attended and everyone had a great time. Anyone can join JCI Liverpool for drinks in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. JCI members enjoy countless opportunities to learn and work with other like-minded people.

Expanding your network is all about building relationships. JCI offers you the chance to do this by getting to know people locally, nationally and internationally. We hope that attendees make new contacts, pick up fresh ideas and come away inspired.” JCI Liverpool is part of Junior Chamber International, a global network of young professionals, present in more than 100 countries with almost 200,000 members across the world, offering its members opportunities in networking, training and volunteer work.

Notes to Editor:
About JCI Liverpool JCI Liverpool is part of Junior Chamber International, a global network of young professionals, present in more than 100 countries with almost 200,000 members across the world, offering its members opportunities in networking, training and volunteer work. JCI Liverpool (then known as Liverpool Junior of Commerce) was active in Liverpool in the 1970s. One of the Chamber’s most important projects was the first Liverpool Lord Mayor’s Parade in 1972, which became an important annual event, and ran for almost 40 years.
Unfortunately, JCI Liverpool was disbanded in the 1990s. However, the time is right for JCI Liverpool to make a comeback. The city of Liverpool seems more vibrant than ever and presents a perfect environment for a Junior Chamber International and for young professionals eager to make a difference. The Chamber was re-established in November 2011 under the leadership of Kai Graf von Pahlen, Solicitor at Hill Dickinson.
JCI Liverpool’s Board of Directors now includes:
Carla Jane Burns, HR Business Partner, NHS
Emma Turner, HR Business Partner, NHS
Kartik Rajput, Business Specialist, HSBC
Jenny Norris, Solicitor, Hill Dickinson
Stuart Southern, Chief Technology Officer, Quote Shed
Habeeb Yusuf, formerly president of JCI Nigeria (Lagos State Polytechnic)
Michelle Fellowes, Corporate & Executive Performance Coach, Ambitious Change
