OUR SPEAKER FOR THE EVENING:
Liz Whitaker | Founding Director | Propella
“After 30 years working with B2B organisations showing them how to use communications to a) win more business from existing and new clients b) retain and recruit top talent, I’ve got a pretty good idea of what works (and what doesn’t). So I wrote it all down in my Amazon bestseller, The Power of Personal – How to Connect, Convince, and Create Exceptional Client Relationships (47 five-star reviews and regularly in the top ten for marketing/sales and customer service). But I started my career as a PA (it was so long ago and not many people know this!) working in an independent television company. What I learned about people, processes and strategy in that time has served me brilliantly throughout my career.
Everything I do is based on the fact that people buy from people, always have and always will. They also work for people, vote for people, donate to people and get behind people. My unique methodology works brilliantly, every time, for marketing, business development, leadership communications, internal communications, human resources, and career development. My work is delivered through keynote presentations, facilitated workshops, coaching and consultancy.”
