Meet Your Future: Become A Game-Changing Leader

Greater Manchester is renowned worldwide for our first-class universities and talented graduates ready for the local workforce.

This event will bring together GM’s business network, local communities, and colleges / students to lead the way and shape the future. The aims of the day are to forge stronger links between the student talent pool and businesses in our region. It will provide an opportunity for both local businesses and students to understand and learn from each other.

The business leaders will be able to explore the key drivers for attracting future talent (e.g., corporate social responsibility; social value; a wider sense of purpose, business ethics, sustainability and vision), whilst students will have access and insight into the avenues, pathways and find the tips on how to become a new era leader.

The session enables local businesses and university students to enjoy a morning of networking and gainful insights with keynote speakers, leadership panels and Q & A’s.

We’ll be joined by GC Social Value Advisors, The People, Skills and Talent Team, Skills for Growth, Enterprising You and GM Good Employment Charter, inspiring local businesses, and university representatives to ensure attendees leave with insightful and practical take-aways.
