pro-manchester Impact ReportThursday, 8th April 2021
When our last Impact Report was published back in 2019, we had no idea what was yet to come and how the world was going to change.
Now, as we see the shoots of recovery, the slow easing of restrictions and a return to ‘normal’ life we publish our 2021 Impact Report creating valuable insight into a very ‘virtual’ year for pro-manchester as an organisation and for our member firms.
A huge part of what we do has always been events. Events are the place where we bring people together and we’re pleased to say that in 2020 whilst all of our events moved to a virtual stage we have welcomed over 10,000 delegates to more than 120 events and 93% of our events were given a rating of excellent or good from our community.
Our 2021 report also takes a look at the year ahead and the feeling in our community – spoiler alert – a whopping 89% of you said you were ready for a return to live events. We also chat with member firms including Mills & Reeve about their experience as pro-manchester members and the newfound benefits of the past twelve months.
Bringing this report together for 2021 has been an important moment for us as an organisation. Whilst we have been locked down and working from home, we are reminded that we are still bringing value to people every day, we hope you find value in this report too and look forward to sharing the coming year with you.
