On the Road by 6.30am at Start of a Long Day; Working Day: IN ASSOCIATION WITH Rensburg Sheppards Investment Management in Association with DLIB Downtown Liverpool in Business


Byline: Darrell Matthews

DARRELL MATTHEWS is regional director for the Institute of Directors in the North West.

Darrell lives in Southport with his partner, Joanne.

5.45am: It's always an early start for me, but I am a morning person, so I am usually on the road for my commute between Southport and Manchester by 6.30am, using the time on the road to plan the day ahead, or just listen to Radio 5 Live.

7.45am: The journey is not too taxing this early in the morning, so I am often at the IoD office on St Peter's Square by 8am.

This event, organised with the IoD, was a great success, attracting over 100 guests keen on maximising the investment potential of Liverpool's Capital of Culture status.

12.30pm: Lunch doesn't necessarily mean a break. Today I have to meet with the head of a large professional services firm to discuss the possibility of sponsoring some of the popular and informative networking events the IoD organises each month.

Past events have included breakfast seminars on the importance of brand identity, conflict resolution, and how to keep employees motivated and stimulated. These events regularly occur at venues throughout the North West, and are an excellent chance for directors to tap into new business methods and best practise trends. …
