On Thursday night, the pro-Manchester Made in Manchester Awards crowned the youngest professional talent in the city.
New categories at the 9th Annual, held at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, included Sustainability Champion, Diversity & Inclusiveness Champion, and Hospitality Professional of the Year.
Along with the inclusion of The Manchester Community Hero award, these new categories created the largest award lineup in the history of the event and attracted a record number of attendees.
Returning to the big stage after a virtual event in 2021, the event was hosted by radio and television personality Jenny Powell and celebrated excellence in innovation, entrepreneurship, education, development and leadership.
“It was fantastic to see a record number of nominations this year, but even better than that to see a room packed with people ready to celebrate that fantastic talent in person,” said future pro-Manchester president Laura Guillon, also a senior associate at Hall Brown.
“Despite taking the presidency of the future pro-Manchester role in 2020, this was my first Made in Manchester Awards ‘live’ and it was worth the wait.
“It has been the busiest 18 months some of us could ever experience in our careers and the quality of the candidates and sheer talent on stage tonight was the ultimate testament to the resilience of Manchester’s business community and the leaders of tomorrow.”
This year there is the largest formation ever for the Made in Manchester Awards! The winners will be revealed shortly …
