Who is speaking

Our speaker programmes are carefully researched each year to ensure that delegates are exposed to the highest level of expertise. However, delegates not only benefit from the experience of our speakers, but also gain an insight into the experiences of other attendees – Q&A sessions and panel discussions are utilised to enable knowledge share and facilitate idea exchange.

If you have a cutting edge case study or relevant presentation and would like to join the speaker panel at one of our events, please contact Stefanie Castellanos at s.castellanos@oxfordglobal.co.uk
