Getting to know the Celebrate presenters!

One of the very early decisions I had to make when planning Celebrate was choosing the presenters for the event.   I wanted to choose speakers who were experts in their field. However I didn’t want CEO’s of large corporations – I wanted speakers who could understand small businesses and mum’s in business.

I wanted presenters who I knew could relate to the Celebrate attendees and this industry and would provide knowledge and  inspiration. I also wanted high value speakers – if business owners were going to make the effort to spend the whole day at Celebrate – I wanted to ensure they heard from incredible speakers.

Tickets for Celebrate close in just 2 weeks so I wanted to share more about the amazing presenters chosen and below I have shared more about them and what they will be presenting on!
