I attended the presentation last year that focused on Manchester and was blown away by the creative approaches to solving problems in an oft-ignored area of our city. My thoughts on that presentation are here. Unfortunately I can’t attend this year so if you go please let us know what you heard and saw. Full details on the event below.
