Episode notes

"If you can see the poverty in Greater Manchester or anywhere and not act, I'm worried.” - Vikas Shah MBE

Ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Friday 3rd June, we are taking a look back at those, of our guests, who have been recognised for their acts of service to others, to their communities and to causes they hold close to their hearts. 

Join us for a special episode in which we will hear the inspirational stories of the Mancs who have been awarded MBEs, OBEs, Deputy Lieutenant and High Sheriff and the reasons for which they have chosen to devote their lives to service. 


Your host, Lisa Morton, started PR company Roland Dransfield in 1996, one month after the fateful IRA bomb that tore apart the city centre.  From that point, the business, and its team members, have been involved in helping to support the creation of Modern Manchester – across regeneration, business, charity, leisure and hospitality, sport and culture.

To celebrate the 25 years that Roland Dransfield has spent creating these bonds, Lisa is gathering together some of her Greater Mancunian ‘family’ and will be exploring how they have created their own purposeful relationships with the best place in the world.
