DSG Chartered Accountants (DSG) is delighted to announce that it will sponsor the Institute of Directors (IoD) in the Liverpool City Region for the next 12 months.

Over the next year, DSG will be a lead sponsor at a series of events across the region, including breakfast meetings, debates, and the organisation’s regional conference in Liverpool in November.

DSG will host its own event later in the year, with details to be confirmed in due course.

The first session under DSG sponsorship welcomed an audience at ACC Liverpool for a question-and-answer session with Metro Mayors Steve Rotheram and Andy Burnham on a variety of topics, from infrastructure projects, to supporting businesses post pandemic.

Mr Rotheram said that if the UK Government was serious about its levelling up agenda, Liverpool city region could see its “greatest period of growth since the Industrial Revolution” and called on the Government to back Liverpool’s £1.4bn economic recovery plan.

“We can forge new industries here. We have the assets to do that. If the Government agrees to fund it then that would be proper levelling up,” he said.

From its offices in Liverpool City Centre and Ewloe, North Wales, DSG provides independent accountancy and advisory services to a variety of small, medium, and larger businesses. The firm is a member of DFK International, a global association of accounting firms, that provides access to local knowledge on a global scale in matters such as tax planning, expanding overseas and regular compliance.

The IoD is the representative body of business leaders across the UK. Established in 1903, the group holds a series of networking and discussion events throughout the year.

Mark Kearsley, tax partner at DSG and IoD member, said: “We’re delighted to be named as a sponsor for the IoD in the Liverpool City Region.

“This is a prestigious organisation within the business community and this partnership further underlines our position as one of the region’s largest independent advisory practices and as a partner-led team, linking up with the IoD network can only improve the overall experience for our clients.

“The first event with Steve Rotheram and Andy Burnham was a great success and we look forward to further such opportunities moving forward.”

The IoD’s next event sponsored by DSG will be an audience with Steve Morgan, founder of housebuilder Redrow, on 15th September.

More details will be made available in due course.
