Manc 76: Maria Turner - The Scouse Diamond of Manchester
Play • 45 min
“For me it’s about giving opportunities to others.”

Maria Turner is the Client Services Director at Roland Dransfield. She’s recently celebrated 10 years at Roland Dransfield, having worked her way continuously from work experience - straight out of The University of Manchester - all the way to the leadership team.  

Maria was an integral part of the team that created the “Roland Dransfield Way”, a set of values that form the core of the business. In this episode, you’ll hear that she lives those values day in, day out. So what draws a Scouser to Manchester, to work here, to strengthen relationships and help build this city (whilst wearing some of the highest stiletto ankle boots Manchester has ever seen)?

This conversation is about crafting a career and creating a legacy within a company and a community. Lisa and Maria discuss the “pits and peaks” of 10 years in business together and the “purposeful relationships” the business has created in that time. 

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 26 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.
