Manchester Central chats to CEO of pro-manchester in latest podcast episode

The second episode of ‘Central Chat: Spotlight On’, a spin-off series of Manchester Central’s pioneering podcast, went live this week.

Hosted by Digital Communications Executive, Samantha Pike-Devlin, episode two features Sam Booth – CEO of pro-manchester – a business development organisation that represents more than 280 businesses from more than 50 sectors across the north west of England.

As a provider of learning and networking events for local Manchester businesses, the pandemic meant that Sam and her team had to completely shift focus and move all of their activity online.

The episode also celebrates International Women’s Day, highlighting Sam’s role as a female CEO and her tips for young girls and women climbing the career ladder today.
