Liz Manfredi

Location: Cheshire | UK

Liz is the Business Development Manager and head of sales and marketing for a highly successful IT and payment company in Cheshire.  Her role sees her being instrumental in identifying new opportunities for the company, which involves plenty of travel, as well as designing marketing campaigns and writing articles to enhance the profile of the company.

Her enthusiasm and desire to achieve more than the mundane has led to her being involved with the Cheshire Commonwealth Association, led by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire, to encourage businesses in Cheshire to build relationships with the Commonwealth of Nations. 

She is also heavily involved with the company’s Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Skill and helped to successfully launch an exporting pilot day for young people, which in turn led to the course becoming a recognised Skill on the Awards syllabus, giving 300,000 young people the opportunity to learn more about exporting.

Building on her skill base, she has created original websites both for the DofE course and CCA amongst others and is always willing to help others complete ambitions or projects with any relevant skill she may have.

Giving back is also important and being the daughter of a vicar has taught her the importance of helping others with time or support when it’s needed most.  She participates in a weekly call via the Age UK telephone friend service and is happy to donate time to others if they need it. 

Her interests away from work include gardening and cookery as well as looking after her family, including supporting her son with his passion for playing the trumpet and cornet across the North West.
