Managing Director and Chairman, EASB
As MD of Speakers Corner, former Chairman of the European Association of Speaker Bureaus and Co-Chair of the 2017 IASB (International Association of Speaker Bureaus), I am so lucky that my job and passion are one and the same. I have always aspired to ensure our clients secure the best speaker, presenter or host for their events or conferences.
It could also be said that the opportunity to build and grow Speakers Corner came about when my path crossed with our founder Cheryl Goldhill. With my background in the era of the first dotcom boom and bust and then some more ‘grounded’ work life with a major FTSE100 company in IT and project management, I was looking for the opportunity to grow my own company and create something new.
My passions mainly involve eating and sport but it is rumoured that I can also carve a mean ice sculpture.
“There is no use trying" said Alice; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I dare say you haven't had much practice", said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
