Nominate your Original Thinker

(20 May 2015)

As part of its 50th anniversary, Manchester Business School (MBS) is celebrating the North West’s most Original Thinkers – people who challenged the norms, took risks and changed the world. This is what Manchester is about, and this spirit of innovation is fundamental to MBS.

Which Original Thinkers from Manchester and the North West of England do you most admire? Email your nomination(s), by Tuesday, 26 May, or share on social media using #mbs50.

Your nominee could have be born and bred in the region, or they could be closely linked to the North West through pioneering work. On Thursday, 28 May, 50 finalists will be announced and you will have the opportunity to vote on MBS’ 50th anniversary microsite.

Need some inspiration? Hear some of the academics’ nominations on YouTube or visit the website to view a good summary – from scientists and philanthropists to artists and inventors.

Join the celebration of the city and region we are part of.
