MEDIA entrepreneur Neil Lewis has committed himself to uncovering Cheshire’s and North Wales’ hidden creative, digital, media and market talent.

“This region is rich with talent and innovation in the creative, digital and market fields,” he said, “but local businesses don’t know how to find and connect with these skills.”

After nearly a year of research, testing and piloting, Neil will launch the first of a series of Enterprise & Freelance Fairs in Warrington on June 16.

“The event will be a kind of speed dating but between freelancers and businesses,” said Ceri Hughes, a marketing freelancer supporting the new events.

The aim is that every freelancer gets at least three minutes to pitch their skills, ideas and talent to each of the participating businesses who are looking to hire and contract local freelance talent.

The first event will be held at the Village Hotel in Warrington. For more information visit:
