Manon Bradley
development director
Major Projects Association

Manon is the Development Director of the Major Projects Association the purpose of which is to improve the initiation and delivery of major projects. Over the past 19 years Manon has been involved in every aspect of delivering that vision: from the production of thought leadership publications to the development of the Major Project Knowledge Hub. She has a keen understanding of the barriers to major project success. Her knowledge of the systemic issues underlying the root causes of major project delivery and initiation is founded on more than a decade of involvement with members, PhD researchers and communication with members throughout the supply chain. This knowledge led her to establish the Major Projects Association’s Diversity and Inclusion initiative which frames the issue of diversity as a challenge for the whole sector to improve performance. Through this approach the Association has been able to engage a group of business leaders in a tough conversation, enabling them to take ownership of their own responses. In this capacity Manon has played a key role within diversity initiatives across infrastructure, engineering and major projects sectors. Manon is also a competitive drug-free powerlifter. In the 20 years that she has been competing she has won 13 World Championships, 9 European Championships and held 8 World Records and a host of British titles and records. She is the current bench-press World Record holder in her age and weight category.
