A thank you and farewell

 Registration is closed for this event
An event to say thank you and goodbye to Alex Whinnom and Ian Taylor as they depart from GMCVO.

After a combined total of 32 years in post, Alex Whinnom (Chief Executive) and Ian Taylor (Business Development Director) are moving on as part of GMCVO’s repositioning of its core business

They have both played significant roles in the success of GMCVO over the past two decades and have made a huge contribution to the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector and the communities of Greater Manchester.

We can’t let them go without thanking them for all they have done for Greater Manchester and we very much hope you can join us online to share stories and say farewell.

This is also a chance to hear from our new leadership, John Hannen, new Chief Executive and Gary Millar, Chief Operating Officer and their vision for the future.

(The event will be broadcast from St Thomas Centre where GMCVO staff and board members will be physically present).

Share a video message

To mark the departure of Alex and Ian, we are inviting our friends, members and colleagues to submit a short video message. We will select some of these messages to share at the celebration event, and compile all of them to present to Alex and Ian as a record of their time at GMCVO.

You might want to share a memory, a funny story, say thank you for something or just wish either or both well for the future, anything goes! All we ask is that your video is no more than 30 seconds long and is MP4 format (this is standard video format). Please email your video to viki.lee@gmcvo.org.uk, either as an attachment or via We Transfer by 22nd September.
