Event speaker 

When not organising events or writing blogs I can be found on the stage at industry events or on judging panels for industry awards. 

I have spoken on topics including social media for both event planners and convention bureaus, member engagement for associations and the future of industry news media at Eventlab, The Annual Exchange, Meetings Industry Destination Summit and the Association of Association Exeutives Awards, as well as presenting or being interviewed online by other bloggers, event industry groups and event management students. 

Awards judge

I was delighted when I was asked to join the MIAList judging panel alongside some esteemed personalities from across the event industry. It is a genuine privilege every year to meet and interview event professionals who are going above and beyond.

In 2019 I was also on the judging panel for the Hire Space Awards.
