PRIVATE members’ business club, theProfileClub recently celebrated its 6th Birthday with a Christmas event at at Rosso in Manchester.

Set up in 2011 by Barbara Hallwood, managing director of Hale based Marketing, PR, Social media and Events company, Marketing Profile, the club now attracts senior executives from across the North West.

The club's membership is capped at 100 senior decision makers from across the region.

Entertainment at the event was provided by String Infusion, an all-female group of String musicians. The group performed both acoustic and electric sets with pieces from a variety of musical genres.

String Infusion is the brainchild of Mancunian and former Royal Northern College of Music undergraduate Emma Rushworth and a client of Marketing Profile.

Emma commented: “We loved performing for theProfileClub, our music and visual style has wide appeal and we have the versatility to adapt, providing bespoke performances whether you want 20 musicians at an awards ceremony, or 3 at an intimate wedding.

"We also love collaborating with other artists and it’s been a particularly exciting week for us with lots of bookings including Saturday night’s XFactor.”

Barbara added: “Many thanks to all of our members for their support - the six years have just flown by. The focus of the group is all about quality, not quantity we endeavour to provide invaluable business introductions through bespoke events. We are delighted to celebrate our sixth Birthday at Rosso and we’re thrilled that String Infusion were able to join us."
