Speakers' biographies

Sir Brian Leveson was called to the Bar by Middle Temple in 1970. He practised on the Northern Circuit from chambers in Liverpool, across the full range of common law, crime, personal injury and commercial work. He was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1986, and was a Recorder and a Deputy High Court Judge. He was appointed a Judge of the High Court, Queen’s Bench Division, in 2000, and served as a Presiding Judge of the Northern Circuit. In 2005 he was appointed to the new position of Deputy Senior Presiding Judge and in 2006, following his appointment as a Lord Justice of Appeal, he became Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales.

In 2009, he was appointed Chairman of the Sentencing Council. In July 2011, he was appointed by the Prime Minister as chairman of the public inquiry investigating the culture, practices and ethics of the press and its relationship with the public, the police and politicians: his report was published in November 2012.  Sir Brian was made President of the Queen’s Bench on 1st October 2013.

He is an honorary fellow of Merton College, Oxford, is the Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University and has received an honorary LL.D. from the University of Liverpool.

Max Steinberg CBE was appointed Chief Executive of Liverpool Vision in July 2010.
Max began his career at Liverpool City Council in 1975 before moving to the Housing Corporation where he spent 25 years working in all aspects of housing, eventually becoming Director of Investment and Regeneration North before becoming Chief Executive of Elevate East Lancashire in 2003.  In 2009 he became Chief Executive of Regenerate Pennine Lancashire Ltd, one of the largest Economic Development Companies in the UK.

On joining Liverpool Vision, Max oversaw Liverpool’s award winning six-month participation in the World EXPO Shanghai 2010, a six-month global event based around the theme of ‘better city, better life’ which culminated in the Liverpool Gala Day on 16 October 2010.

Under his leadership Liverpool Vision has been responsible for hosting the Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2012. The week-long congress showcased the city’s economic ambition and is widely regarded as the most successful GEC event to date, welcoming several thousand delegates from 125 countries.

Max has also overseen the enhancement of Liverpool Vision’s business growth service, expansion of Liverpool Vision’s work in key international markets and the creation of Marketing Liverpool.

Max was instrumental in securing the first International Festival for Business 2014 which was held in Liverpool and had overall responsibility for the organisation and delivery of the Festival. He was Chair of the Festival and Executive Steering Group in 2014 and 2016.  The scale and reach of the IFB has secured domestic sales and exports which have far exceeded the targets set.  Max is now chairing the 2018 Festival.

Max was awarded the OBE in 1997 for services to Housing and Regeneration on Merseyside, and was on the Board of Liverpool John Moores University European Institute of Urban Affairs from 1992 and was its chairman until 2013. He is Chair of the Riverside Housing Group and was a non-executive director of Kensington Regeneration from 2003-2006. He was also awarded a Senior Fellowship at Liverpool Hope University in 2011.  In June 2013 Max was awarded the CBE for services to Business and the Community in the Birthday Honours List.
