Manchester Global Ambassador Programme

The Global Ambassador Programme aims to support Greater Manchester’s strategy for encouraging inward investment, stimulating local pride, attracting and retaining talent, all with the aim of developing the local economy.

Global Ambassadors are well connected leaders in target sectors and international markets who promote positive national and international perceptions of Manchester and support aspirations to attract talent and investment.

Marketing Manchester facilitates the programme in service of Greater Manchester, in support of its strategic priorities to promote the city region on a national and international stage.

Global Ambassadors

Global Ambassadors are Manchester voices, business leaders and academics who have international reach and strong global networks. They will support our work to raise the profile of the city region and attract inward investment.

We will work with each in a bespoke way to fit around their usual activity and travel, equipping them with the tools needed to promote the city region internationally. They may convey messages about Manchester in meetings and conferences, make business introductions and feature in media.
