Welcome to a massive SheSays evening of talks and networking with five fantastic speakers. We’ve been running these events since 2011 and we’re delighted to invite back five previous speakers, who, since appearing at SheSays have taken major national leadership roles in their industries. Come and celebrate their successes on International Women’s Day 2019.

We’re honoured to hear again from Emily Scoggins, now a music and tech Marketing consultant. Since she last spoke at SheSays in 2013, Emily became Head of Marketing of the world’s most successful venue: the O2. She spoke at SXSW 2018 on “How will AI distrupt the current music ecosystem?” and “How Adobe Campaign helped keep The O2 Fan-First” at Adobe Summit Europe 2018. @emilyrocks

We’re excited to hear from digital strategist Melissa Ezechukwuwho went on to be Global Digital Lead at Marie Stopes after she spoke at SheSays in 2015. She now spends her days helping charities and non-profits engage better online, finding solutions to their problems, and inspiring them about the opportunities a good website can bring. @MelEzechukwu

Natalie Kanewowed us in 2017 with her predictions of the future of tech, when she was working for Manchester’s Future Everything. We’re so proud that she is now Curator of Digital Design at the Victoria and Albert Museum. We can’t wait to hear about all her adventures and plans. @nd_kane
