Since 2013 GM Business Connect Magazine has been bringing the Manchester business community together through our free printed and electronic editions, and our intention behind this is to provide a platform to connect the businesses of Greater Manchester.

We are very proud to feature our Video and Podcast channels titled Inspired Greater Manchester. The intention is to inspire our regional business community to engage with these platforms, bringing together business people, entrepreneurs and start-ups. Partnering with Geeky Group – run by Manchester-based Phil Crowshaw – our content consists of an ever-growing range of video and audio material, all designed to inform and inspire you as you drive towards achieving your maximum personal and business potential.

All interviews are available both in video and podcast format.

We chose Phil and Geeky Group as our partner in this venture due to their experience in producing and distributing a wide range of online video and audio content. They were responsible for starting the world’s first business TV channel in 2003, and the first online Multi Media magazine linked to Twitter, Tweeting Times. Phil has conducted over 400 video interviews with people from entertainment, politics, sport and of course, business.

We very much hope you enjoy the content and pick up some useful tips and insights along the way. Our aim is to Inspire you.
