Celebrating Original Thinkers

21 May 2015

Manchester Business School invite you nominate the region's most Original Thinkers as part of its 50th anniversary celeberations

As part its 50th anniversary, Manchester Business School is celebrating the North West’s most Original Thinkers – people who challenged the norms, took risks and changed the world. This is what Manchester is about, and this spirit of innovation is fundamental to Manchester Business School.

Which Original Thinkers from Manchester and the North West of England do you most admire?

Your nomination could have be born and bred in the region, or they could be closely linked to the North West through pioneering work. On 28 May, we’ll announce 50 finalists to vote for on our 50th anniversary microsite. Don’t forget to come back and vote!

Need some inspiration?
