Name: Kate Mayers
Company: Pennine Lancashire Enterprise Trust
Position: Project manager
After graduating in 2004 I spent six months working in Yosemite, California and a further year working at a London production company before realising my love of the North so moved back up to Manchester.
During this time I spent time working as a publicist on accounts including Hasbro Toys, Weight Watchers, WD40 and the European Health and Fitness Association.
I joined Burnley Enterprise back in 2006 and since then have headed up various initiatives including ‘beconnected’ – a Burnley based networking event which I launched in 2007. I’m planning to launch beconnected to a wider audience in 2010 and beyond.
What’s keeping you busy?
