MYP was formed by representatives of the various professional bodies in the city including, Chartered Accountants, Law Society, Bankers, Insurers and included the then Liverpool Junior Chamber of Commerce. Its original aim was to organise an annual charity ball to raise money for a deserving local charity.
In 1999 the group formed an independent organisation to promote stronger links between young people in different professions and in particular to facilitate networking. As the name MYP was already well known in the city this name was used to promote monthly events to compliment the already successful annual ball and Merseyside Young Professionals.
We often get asked who MYP is aimed at and whether there is an age limit. Traditionally MYP is designed to suit people starting out in their careers, taking their first networking steps. However, MYP is a frame of mind and if you feel you would be comfortable at our events then you are welcome. We would encourage you to view details of past events and if still in doubt why not come along and try an event out to see if it suits you?
