The sun was shining this week, as Soapworks, the former Colgate-Palmolive factory in Salford Quays, opened the doors to its brand-new marketing suite, officially launching Phase II of the scheme to the Manchester property market.
With construction now fully underway, The Carlyle Group and its joint venture partners Nikal and Abstract Securities invited a selection of the most influential decision makers within the Manchester property market to attend a breakfast event held over two days. The event was held to present the next speculative 210,000 sq. ft. phase of its £70 million Soapworks office development in Salford Quays, MediaCity, Manchester.
Guests arrived from 7.30am, where there was time for coffees and a catch up ahead of the breakfast. Prior to tucking in to a delicious full English, the Soapworks team delivered a number of presentations outlining the delivery of the second phase of development and how this will see the iconic former factory transform into the city’s most dynamic Grade A office destination.
The team at Roland Dransfield PR were of course on hand to ensure that everything ran smoothly at each event, and more importantly to make sure that all guests left with a full stomach and a swanky brochure, which shows that Soapworks is now, “Fit and Ready For Business.”

Over 100 female professionals turned out on a snowy Tuesday lunchtime to come to Hill Dickinson’s stunning offices in the city centre of Liverpool, all as part of the law firm’s second Ladies’ business forum.
Paralympian, Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson, who was guest speaker at the event, captivated the audience as she spoke about the obstacles she had overcome to become one of the most iconic sporting women of all time.
She also chatted about her determination and commitment to sporting success, giving one example where she and her husband Paul got married and for their honeymoon chose to go to a Swiss training boot camp! So much for an all-inclusive trip to the Maldives!
The audience then got the chance to ask Tanni questions before retiring for a sumptuous lunch overlooking the River Mersey.
A relaxed informal event that everyone thoroughly enjoyed, and after Cherie Blair last year, well we can’t wait to hear who next year’s speaker will be!
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Liverpool Training School and Home for Nurses – the first such school outside London.
Working alongside BBC Health Correspondent Nina Warhurst and our client Liverpool Community Health (NHS) Trust, RDPR worked to put together a two-part series to feature on BBC North West Tonight, to celebrate the 150th anniversary and to showcase the District Nursing Service available in the City today.
Throughout the programme the BBC North West shadowed Mandy Parker, Professional Development Mentor at Liverpool Community Health and highlighted the day-in-the-life experience of nursing within the Liverpool community.
The two part series also explores the history of nursing with Liverpool University researcher, Meg Parkes and then finally broadcasts the future of community nursing with local university students.
BBC Journalist Nina Warhurst thanked RDPR for helping put together the series, but in particular the team’s Junior Account Executive, Maria Murphy. Nina Warhurst commented:-
“I would like to thank Maria Murphy for all her hard work over our two part series on 150 Years of Nursing in Liverpool. There has been a lot to organise and facilitate and she has been so thorough and helpful.
It’s made for some lovely TV.”
The ‘event season’ was kicked off in style last night as the Directors of GVA Manchester welcomed the great and the good of the region’s property industry to the new National Football Museum for its drinks reception.
Mark Rawstron kept it short and sweet as he welcomed guests, who were then invited up to the exhibition space to get a private viewing of some of the world’s finest collection of football artefacts and archives.
A great turn out, fantastic venue and good company.
After a very successful three days at the BCSC Conference handling the social media strategy for our new client The Co-operative food property, the highlight was the team hosting a networking event on Tuesday 11th September at the Albert Dock’s in Liverpool.
Property agents, developers, and landlords, who attended the BCSC Conference, were all invited to meet the team over lunch and drinks at PanAm bar and restaurant in Britannia Pavilion from 12 noon until 2pm, where the event was to target new stores across the North West as part of its ongoing acquisitions programme. Over 200 guests arrived on the day to celebrate the teams success at being on target to deliver over 80 stores across the UK this year.
Stuart Hookins, Head of Portfolio, Acquisitions and Disposals and Andrew Coles, National Acquistions Manager mingled with guests to discuss how the team will be forging ahead with its acquisitions programme to expand its estate and how they are specifically looking for new locations across the North West in 2013.
Our client, planning consultants GL Hearn, hosted a great event on Monday night for BCSC goers. The firm’s MD, Brian Sloggett, welcomed guests as they arrived thick and fast at Palm Sugar, with the bar being packed with BCSC-ers by 8:30pm. Lisa, Suzy, and I could only look on at the cocktails as we were driving back to Manchester, but if the rate of consumption was anything to go by, they must’ve been mighty good!
I know I run the risk of majoring on the cocktails too much, but the savvy ones at GL Hearn named the drinks after some of their best-known consultants:
The Andrew Hetherton (Amaretto Sour)
Amaretto, fresh lemon juice, sugars and dash of soda, maraschino
The Richard Kitching (The Harvey Wall Banger)
Vodka, Vanilla Liquor, Fresh orange juice
The Shaun Andrews (Orange and Ginger Cosmopolitan)
Vodka, Cointreau, Fresh Lime & Cranberry, Orange and Ginger Cider
The Stephen Cowperthwaite (Margarita on the rocks)
Tequila, Fresh lemon juice and Fresh Lime Juice
The Emma Warren (otherwise known to as The Rossini)
Prosecco and strawberry puree
Well done to GL Hearn for hosting a great night and making Palm Sugar the place to be on the first night of BCSC.
