The Trafford Leaders’ Lounge is an informal event providing the opportunity to network and build relationships with leaders from across the private, public and third sectors in Trafford.
On 9th February 2017, we welcome Eamonn O'Neal, Chair of our new Trafford Youth Trust, as guest speaker alongside Lesley Davies, the new Principal and Chief Executive of Trafford College.

Featuring puppets, props and production artwork from a range of Aardman titles including, Wallace and Gromit,The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! andTimmy Time, the exhibition tells the story of how each character is brought to the screen, and provides a unique, and fun, setting for the Leaders' Lounge
The Leaders’ Lounge is hosted by Cllr Sean Anstee, Leader of Trafford Council and Chair of the Trafford Partnership. The Trafford Partnership brings together organisations from across the public, private and third sector to achieve a shared vision for Trafford. We want to extend this sense of a collaborative ownership of Trafford’s future by developing and maintaining senior-level relationships across the borough. The Leaders’ Lounge creates a relaxed environment for Trafford’s leaders to make new contacts, share ideas and learn from each other, and enable you to raise your profile amongst other local organisations. Guests will receive complimentary drinks and canapés on arrival.
The objectives of the Trafford Leaders’ Lounge are:

To establish a network which enables Trafford’s leaders to share ideas and learn from each other.
To enable invited organisations to raise their profile amongst other key stakeholder organisations.
To develop a sense of collaborative ownership of Trafford’s future.
