On Tuesday 20th September from 1-4pm at 54 St James Street, Liverpool, L1 0AB there will be the chance to meet an esteemed panel of Merseyside based digitally focussed entrepreneurs as part of a ‘Snap Panel’ – So come along and meet the people who have been there, done that and are still doing it as they share their experiences of starting a digital business, and hear them talk about how the world of digital and web has helped them along their way.

Introducing the panel… 

Lydia Jones is one very special teenager – She is the 17 year old creator of App – Fit Flash – the ultimate social platform for health and fitness individuals, an app that allows users to connect with like-minded people through the use of groups. Lydia began developing the app last year wanting to combat the isolation that she felt from home-schooling and make positive changes combining her passion of fitness with a digital element.

Rachel Brewster heads up Little Vintage Photography - Previously Rachel ran Liverpool Screen School's technical department for LJMU alongside her ongoing freelance work in the media production industry for seven years. She set up Little Vintage Photography to focus on the unique convergence of analogue photography and digital technology across STEM subject areas, working to engage people from all socio-economic backgrounds in producing creative output. Alongside this, Rachel enjoys working as a sessional violinist and touring with her mariachi rock band 'Roja' who featured on the recent BBC series 'Britain's Best Part-Time Band'.

Liam Kelly – Director of MAKE Liverpool – Liam first delved in to enterprise as a teenager, starting a business with his best friend, connecting schools to coaches. After this came to an end, like any entrepreneur he embraced failure and moved on to the next idea! Before co-founding MAKE Liverpool, Liam has done a number of thing; worked as a youth worker, in sports development, coach training and with a friend on BMX apparel. Throughout all of these roles and ventures digital technology has been utilised for success through the likes of YouTube, social media content and more recently maker tech.

So –

If you are a young person interested in enterprise or starting your own business, whether this is a digital or web based business or a business that will use digital to help it along its way.

This is the event for you!
