Following the completion of an Accounting degree at Sheffield Hallam University, Manjas embarked on an early media career, starting at Soho based Televisual Magazine before setting up the first ever UK event showcasing High Definition Technologies in 2005.
He soon found his true calling in independent film production and alongside London’s leading advertising agencies, Manjas was instrumental in producing engaging video content for brands such as Johnnie Walker, Mazda and Heineken. This experience led to the formation of Manjas’ first company, Film AM in 2010, with a specific goal of producing engaging video content. Film AM Weddings went on to become market leaders in providing innovative and cinematic wedding cinematography worldwide.
Following a lifelong interest in property development and refurbishment, PKL Investments was set up in 2014; a UK focused property development and investment business committed to delivering innovative schemes of the highest quality. This led to the creation of The Stay Company in 2017, offering an alternative to high end hotels through well thought out and quality serviced accommodation throughout the East Midlands with all the benefits of a hotel along with privacy and practicality of your own fully furnished apartment.
Manjas has always had a keen involvement with his father, Dr Lidder in the running of their group of Care Homes ever since we was ‘encouraged’ to work as a night carer for pocket money whilst still at school! Along with his father, Manjas is committed in ensuring that the highest standards of care continue with all Lidder Care Nursing and Residential Care Homes.
