About Spark

No more boring business events with bland beige buffets!

Spark is a networking forum for igniting business conversations with people just like you across Manchester and the North West.

We’ve set it up so that there are opportunities to connect with each other and grow your business network, in a fun and relaxed environment. Our first event starts with a quiz night for bright sparks on Thursday 12 March at Be at One in Deansgate.

Friendly, fun and informal: nurture your network

How was Spark founded?

Spark was founded by our solicitors Ffion Brumwell-Hughes and Catherine Donnelly. Ffion said: "Spark builds on the success of our previous young professional network. We want the group to be a fun, relaxed environment for people to network with peers across all industries and professions.”  

Calling all bright sparks!

Thank you  for taking an interest in our Bright Sparks Quiz, which was due to take place on Thursday 12 March.

We wanted to let you know that we have been monitoring the situation on a daily basis regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and as Government advice is updated. The health and well-being of our people and our clients is of paramount importance and we are implementing appropriate measures to prioritise that, while working hard to ensure it's business as usual and we continue to deliver for all of our clients.

Given the current spread of COVID-19 and the impact that this is having on many companies, we have taken the decision to postpone the event until the situation has settled down.

We will share details of our new date with further information on how you can RSVP in due course.
