GMC Presents the Leadership Greater Manchester Class of 2023

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.


 ach year, professionals from business, government, education, nonprofit, arts, religious and community groups are selected to participate in Leadership Greater Manchester, a program of the Greater Manchester Chamber designed to recognize and nurture existing leadership talents from diverse sectors of the local community.

Those chosen have demonstrated a strong commitment to the greater Manchester community, have achieved high levels of leadership in their respective spheres of influence, and are capable of assuming greater responsibility in the future.

With the support of our sponsors, Dartmouth Health and Amoskeag Industries, the GMC is thrilled to present the Leadership Greater Manchester Class of 2023:

Hybrid events aim to combine the best of both worlds; the ease and access of a virtual program with the option of organic, in-person networking for guests who value those connections above all else. Though hybrid events are in theory the way of the future, they also pose many challenges and variables with both formats. We decided to tackle this format by pre-recording the formal program with Events United, scheduling a premiere on social media while simultaneously streaming the recorded program to a live audience. While planning the COY event, we realized that the process would have to be open to flexibility and be able to shift on a dime. Luckily, we had learned much over the past 15 months about the benefit of using a tailored approach to each unique event not to mention, our honoree is the archetype of thoughtful agility under pressure. So, it was only fitting that we pursue and welcome these challenges as opportunities to reflect and support our audiences’ needs and honorees strengths.
