City Horizons with Sir Richard Leese: Manchester Then and Now

In his talk, Sir Richard Leese will reflect on his 20 years as leader of Manchester City Council

Date: 12 July 2018
Time: 6pm
Location: The Shard, London

We are delighted to welcome Sir Richard Leese for our event series, City Horizons. Leader of Manchester City Council for over 20 years and a councillor for over 30 years, Sir Richard has been at the forefront of major transformations in the city, from overseeing its regeneration following the 1996 IRA bomb, to helping secure the successful bid to host the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

In this talk Sir Richard will offer his reflections on his career leading Manchester, both successes and the challenges, and consider how Manchester and Greater Manchester’s partnership model has helped fly the flag for cities across the UK, and deliver devolution to English city regions.

This event will take place on 12 July 2018 from 6pm until 8.30pm at Warwick Business School in the Shard.
