Business law firm, DWF, recently hosted an evening with football legend John Barnes.
The event, which took place on Thursday 17 October at the firm's office in Liverpool, was attended by over 70 people and provided a forum for junior and mid-level professionals within the Liverpool area to meet new people, as well as catching up with existing contacts.
Hosted by the Liverpool Young Professionals group at DWF, the evening saw John Barnes entertain guests from companies such as PWC, RSA, KPMG and RBS with tales from his long and varied career.
Andrew McGregor, Chair of the Liverpool Young Professionals group at DWF, commented: "This was a fantastic opportunity for attendees to network with fellow young professionals from across the city and securing John Barnes as a guest speaker is testament to the network's continued success. The events that we run throughout the year are well received and provide a fantastic forum for the future leaders in Liverpool to get together in a relaxed environment."
Throughout the evening DWF also raised over £250 for the breast cancer support group, the Lily Centre, a charity personally chosen by John.
