6. What do you think are the most important things going on in Manchester at the moment?

Events are what’s hot for Manchester right now, I think the potential that can come from all the world-wide attention towards our city is huge, thanks to the Chanel Metiers D’Art show that put the spotlight truly on Manchester, being mentioned in the New York Times as one of the best places to visit in the world! The shift is finally starting to move from London to Manchester, the number of new developments in the city puts us on the map globally. There is big investment into sustainability, with the great addition of Co-op Live arena and their environmental mission and the growing Metrolink connections are all great for the City. The Treehouse brand and the unique product we are bringing to the City with a huge focus on sustainability … I think Manchester is being recognised as a City doing good and changing for the better.

I’m so exciting what the future holds for Manchester!
