Celebrating the Manchester PA Network’s 11th Birthday

A powerhouse network turns 11

A very happy 11th birthday to the Manchester PA Network – what a force! Kudos to co-founders Amanda Hargreaves and Melanie Sheehy, along with fellow leaders Jane Brazzill and Michaela Wakeman, and all your members.

The vision

In the network’s own words, “Our vision continues to be to give EAs, PAs, VAs and support professionals the opportunity to meet, network and develop meaningful long-term professional relationships and personal friendships, and to bring the community together in a networking environment.” These leaders have built and nurtured both an impressive not for profit network and the The Manchester PA Awards. This event provides recognition opportunities not only for local individuals, teams and managers. Its slate of nine awards also includes an award category open to peers across the UK.


The Manchester PA Network has raised over £210,000 for The Christie

The icing on this 11th birthday cake? Through the Network’s events and its four leaders’ daring fundraising (skydive, anyone?) events, the Manchester PA Network has raised more than £210,000 for The Christie charity in memory and honour of those who’ve lost – and those who’ve won – their battles with cancer.

A round of applause, please

To the Manchester PA Network leaders and your members: I applaud you, your 11th anniversary, and your powerhouse network.
