There was standing room only as Downtown Manchester in Business hosted an exclusive event with property entrepreneur Tom Bloxham earlier this week.

Held at the spectacular Piccolino Grande Cafe Manchester ‘Breakfast with Bloxham’  saw the Urban Splash boss discuss his career in business, Manchester’s renaissance, the financial crash, Brexit and football in a wide ranging conversation with Downtown in Businesses CEO Frank McKenna.

Bloxham also talked about his love for Manchester comparing the thriving business community now to that of the Industrial Revolution 150 years ago:

‘This moment in Manchester will be remembered just as much as Manchester during the Victorian age’

He also said Manchester’s success can be put down to the city’s determination and ambition to be recognised internationally as THE world’s best provincial city.

Frank McKenna commented, ‘As always, Tom was informative and inspiring in equal measure. His business journey is fascinating, his passion for Manchester there for all to see. I know that the near 100 delegates who attended the event will have taken away something from the morning.’
