Each week we get to learn a little more about one of our members. This week it’s Michelle Mullany, North Business Development Manager – EY…

  1. Favourite quote or saying?

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel (Maya Angelou)

  1. Career highlight?

Standing on stage and presenting to more than 200 people.  It was definitely out of my comfort zone but felt great afterwards

  1. Why do you love pro-manchester?

It’s a great group of people who want to be part of the ecosystem and to work together to make Manchester a great place to live and work

  1. What are you reading at the moment?

Upscale by James Silver and I’ve recently finished We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver which I really enjoyed

  1. What are you watching at the moment?

The Crown, probably like the rest of the country and I’m loving it

  1. Favourite meeting place in Manchester?

Piccolino in Albert Square for great food and a warm welcome

  1. Favourite lockdown activity?

Getting outside and walking the dog.  Definitely done too much sitting inside in lockdown

  1. Most creative meal that you cook?

I’m quite a dab hand in the kitchen and my slow cooked ox cheek braised in red wine is top drawer – even if I do say so myself

  1. Most creative thing you’ve seen on a video call during the lockdown?

I recently worked with a team and we ran an EY 7 Drivers of Growth strategy session with a group of German entrepreneurs on the EY Start-Up Academy programme.  We had great feedback and were so pleased to help them on their growth journey and deliver a great session virtually

  1. Most mundane task you’ve completed since being in lockdown?

De-cluttering – in fact the kids have now started pointing to things and asking me not to sell them!

  1. What are you looking forward to doing again the most after lockdown?

Like many I’m desperate to see family – in particular my mum who is in a home and we haven’t been allowed to visit.  Once the rules change, I will be hugging everyone so be warned
