Yogesh Patel

Account Manager

Hi I’m Yogesh (or Yogi, as people tend to refer to me)!

Where to begin? I’m an artist through and through, having trained in graphic design, you’ll also find me spending hours and weeks on a photo-realistic graphite portrait (I’ve recently committed to draw my new nephew every year for his birthday!)

I began working in the events industry by working behind the scenes for a large charity, designing banners, publications and on-screen graphics for conferences and fundraisers. I grew to love working backstage where you get to see everything coming together. It was here that I met my first speakers, and over the years, I’ve had the chance to meet with and learn the stories of numerous speakers, I love listening to their stories and hearing what makes them tick.

Most recently, before joining Speakers Corner, I dove into managing the bookings for a well-known business speaker. As he was already on the Speakers Corner roster, I met, and fell in love with the SC team… the rest is history!

In my spare time, you’ll find me making a mess in the kitchen, whilst watching how the pros do it on Netflix. I also love a challenge, if you can learn how to do it, I will try… whether that’s how to complete a Rubix Cube or sing Gangnam Style in full Korean. I recently learned how to tell you what day of the week you were born on, from your date of birth (without a calendar to hand) and can go as far back as 1900… because you just never know!
