Speaker Updates - June 2022
It’s hard to believe we are half way through the year already!
We have been hard at work (and loving it) taking on new speakers to ensure we have a diverse and broad range of speakers on all topics.
As well as our continued relationships with our fabulous clients, we have also been working with new clients, sourcing speakers for ‘larger than life’ events.
We also have a new employee – Chelsea, that has joined us and we are delighted that she can bring a new side to the business. Chelsea was part of the Kickstart Scheme, who did such an amazing job over those 6 months that we couldn’t let her go! Chelsea manages the website, speaker profiles, social media content creation and is learning the ropes as a speaker agent… watch this space!
