COLONY Expands Partnership with Manchester Young Professionals: Exciting Events on the Horizon


We are thrilled to announce the renewal of our dynamic partnership with Manchester Young Professionals (MYP), an alliance that brings together two of Manchester's most vibrant communities of creators, workers, and entrepreneurs. This renewed collaboration is set to further enrich our respective members' experience with an exciting lineup of events and coworking opportunities designed to foster creativity, networking, and professional growth.

“The MYP x Colony partnership is what we would define as a perfect partnership as we evolve into our second year. Blending the energy of our high performing community of emerging leaders, with a dynamic and innovative workspace, it’s a great recipe for the development of young professionals in Manchester's thriving community! Our quarterly cowork days will enable the MYP community to gain access to a diverse network of professionals within the Colony ecosystem, expanding their network in the process.

The collaborative set up at Colony encourages knowledge sharing and supporting each other, which through our mentoring scheme are key pillars of our Careers strategy. And last but not least, Colony's versatile spaces are ideal for hosting MYP events, workshops, panel talks and social gatherings, all of which we will take advantage of this year!” - Rich Tyrrell, MYP founder.

“Our partnership with MYP began as a natural alignment of our shared values—community, collaboration, and the drive to bring people together in inspiring spaces. As we continue this journey, we are excited to unveil several upcoming events that epitomise the spirit of our collaboration.” - Rebecca Mckeown, COLONY Operations Director
