SAE Liverpool to host Northern Power
SAE Liverpool is thrilled to be hosting
Northern Power Women (NPW) on 24 January 2018, who will be discussing important
issues around gender equality, namely in the creative industries, in a live
recording of their podcast.
Starting at 1pm and running until 3:30pm, SAE Liverpool has the pleasure of
welcoming NPW to the campus for an engaging afternoon discussing current
debates, in particular those concerning women in technology and media
NPW is a campaign to accelerate gender equality from the North. Their range of
events and awards bring together both women and men to become 'agents of
change', collectively helping organisations learn, engage and promote their aim
of increasing opportunities for women.
Radio 5 Live's Sam Walker will be chairing the event and leading the questions
for the 3 panellists, who each represent different aspects of the creative
industries. The session will be an eye opening discussion of all of their
personal career experiences, vitally increasing awareness of the issues that
still exist today.
Sam Walkers tells us:- "We're really excited to be bringing the NPW podcast to SAE Institute for
a live recording. Each month the podcast
is a place where women and men at all stages of their career can have frank and
engaging discussions about some of the biggest challenges that they're facing
today, both in and out of work. It's a platform where people can share hopes,
concerns and of course, brilliant advice based on their own experiences."
SAE students as well as the general public, both men and women, are invited to
take part in the insightful discussions, where they are free to ask questions
beforehand through NPW's 'Ask the Hive' set up. With the event concluding with a
networking session, students will also get an opportunity to speak to key people
in the industry and learn even more about this all important topic. Tickets to
attended can be obtained
Kate Corbin, Academic Coordinator SAE Liverpool comments:- "This podcast
and panel event is a great opportunity for students, staff and external
participants to engage in discussion around women's current and future roles in
the creative industry. The idea for the event originated from students at the
Liverpool campus and we hope it is the first of many similar events running at
Older People Living Alone In Southport
Urged To Take Care In The Cold Weather
A manager from a care home in Southport
is urging older people living alone in the community to take extra care in the
cold weather. With temperatures dropping across the country, Christine Hunt,
from Anchor's Thomas Henshaw Court has offered advice to older people living by
She said older people are especially susceptible to the cold but there are steps
neighbours and relatives can take to protect them. Christine, whose care home is
rated Good by regulator the Care Quality Commission, added:- "Anchor is
urging the wider community to keep a close eye on elderly neighbours and their
older relatives who may live alone and are more vulnerable in the cold weather.
Older people should check room temperatures regularly. Day time room
temperatures should be set to a minimum of 21 degrees and 18 degrees at night.
We recommend older people have regular hot drinks and eat at least one hot meal
a day if possible. Eating regularly helps to keep up energy levels up during
winter. And a well nourished body is going to be stronger and therefore more
resilient against the cold. Wrap up warm and wear several light layers of warm
clothes. Wear footwear with a good grip if you need to go outside on cold days.
Take extra care if you go out."

Military host business lunch at secret
ON Wednesday, 24 January 2018, the North
West Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association, the organisation which supports
and promotes the Reserves and the Cadet organisations in the region, is hosting
a Liverpool Chamber of Commerce business lunch at Liverpool War Museum.
The museum is based in the historic City Centre bunker which housed the
headquarters to the:- "Western Approaches" during the 2nd World War,
coordinating the Battle of the Atlantic which proved vital to the allied
Guests at the lunch will be hosted by representatives of the Royal Navy, Army
and Royal Air Force; the 1st time since 1945 that all 3 Services have
been present within the building.
In the summer of 2017 the selection of Liverpool as the nation's host for Armed Forces Day
celebrated the City's proud history of support to the Armed Forces.
This support comprises not only the stalwart role that the City played during
the 2nd World War and the Battle of the Atlantic, but also the support local
businesses give to serving men and women, the Cadet organisations and veterans.
During the lunch representatives of local businesses will hear talks from the
museum and from Liverpool City Council, who were recently presented a:- Gold
Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Award for their support to the Armed Forces
Community in Liverpool.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme was launched to recognise those
employers who support Defence objectives and encourage others to do the same.
The support of local businesses is vital to Defence objectives, while Defence
can provide businesses with access to the skills, training, experience and ethos
serving and former service men and women bring to the civilian workplace.
Commodore Phil Waterhouse, Commander Naval Regional Headquarters Northern
England, said:- "We are greatly looking forward to welcoming the Liverpool
business community to such an historic and significant venue. Liverpool has such
close bonds, both past and present, with the Armed Forces, and the City
continues to provide great support to our wider community of serving men and
women, veterans and the Cadet organisations. This lunch gives us an opportunity
to explain to local organisations the value of the relationship between the
Services and the business community."
Paul Cherpeau, Chief Executive Liverpool
Chamber of Commerce, said:- "It is a great privilege to welcome our
business guests to the Liverpool War Museum, a mere stone's throw away from the
Chamber itself, to hear from representatives of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal
The Chamber in Liverpool played a key role during both World Wars for the
recruitment of volunteers to the war effort and the provision of business
intelligence and information to ensure the wheels of commerce continued to turn.
This event provides a great opportunity to promote the work of the Reserves
Forces and Cadets Association and in particular the Defence Employer Recognition
Scheme. A century on from the end of the 1st World War and the Chamber's
subsequent campaigns to encourage the re-employment of returning soldiers from
the battlefield; it is fitting that we once again advocate the support of
business to our defence services."
