CityCo & Manchester BID: Urban Resilience Training

CityCo and Manchester City BID have a unique position at the heart of the city centre: at the intersection of business sectors, public agencies, delivery partners and operational suppliers. This means we are always in the loop and know who to talk to. We can help you stay up to date with the latest tactical and training knowledge.

Urban Resilience Training

We assist members with the tactical challenges and opportunities of running a business in Manchester city centre. We pre-empt and provide support across issues that can affect successful operation. We identify business needs and then help to problem solve, make recommendations, and bring decision-makers together to find solutions.
