Ninety industry professionals joined the ThinCats team last week to unveil the next developments in the SME finance revolution. The backdrop was the underground bunker where, on becoming Prime Minister in May 1940, Winston Churchill said, 'This is a room from which I will direct the war'.
ThinCats in the North West – Celebrating the region’s SMEs and finance professionals
The National Football Museum was alive last Thursday with the ThinCats in the North West reception; a band of local finance professionals came down to find out about the latest developments in ThinCats SME funding revolution, and were treated to a unique opportunity to be photographed with some very famous silverware, and take part in a penalty shoot-out competition – some surprising skills were shown!
Found in Manchester’s Cathedral Square, the museum houses an amazing array of memorabilia, information and unique historical pieces relating to the game of football throughout the ages, and explains why it is still a key part of England’s heritage and way of life, in the birthplace of the world’s most popular sport.
The prestigious FA Cup and Premier League trophies were available for photographs, and networking took place next to George Best’s mini – underneath a huge LED curtain and screen showcasing ThinCats commitment to funding UK SMEs.
Damon Walford, CDO said: “The National Football Museum provided a fantastic backdrop for us to introduce our expanding North West team, and to meet with finance professionals who share our passion for funding growing and ambitious SMEs. It gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to developing relationships at a local level, and to talk about the phenomenal bank of funding that we have, to help a huge range of brokers, finance houses and intermediaries across the North West to serve their clients with the funding they so desperately need to grow.”
