Rowena Burns, Chief Executive of Manchester Science Partnership, is guest speaker for our next “In Conversation With…” seminar series.
Slater Heelis is delighted to announce that Rowena Burns, Chief Executive of Manchester Science Partnership, will be speaking at the next “In Conversation With” event at HOME on First Street on May 17th.
The quarterly event, hosted by the Manchester based firm, brings a small audience together with key industry figures in a candid chat about current issues affecting the region and businesses.
The featured guest speaker Rowena has held the position of Chief Executive at Manchester Science Partnerships since 2012. She describes the MSP role as perfect, a public/private sector partnership focused on driving growth and opportunity in the most vibrant and innovative sectors of the economy.
Rowena has deep roots in the Greater Manchester economy, and previous roles as a Group Director of the Manchester Airports Group, and latterly, as Chief Operating Officer of MSP’s parent company, Bruntwood Estates, have all been focused on working in partnership – reflecting her deeply held belief that successful cities are those whose leaders make common cause across functional and organisational boundaries, and together deliver more than the sum of their parts. She remains a director of Bruntwood, whose deep development and place-making skills play a key role in the City’s growth strategy.
Spaces for this event are limited. Please register your interest and, closer to the event, your attendance will be confirmed by email.
