Saxton Speakers Bureau is to partner for the first time with outbound MICE industry tradeshow Get Global, to deliver a big line-up of speakers for the July edition.
Get Global was awarded the ‘Exhibition of the Year’ title at the National Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2018, and this year organisers are flagging leadership, management, motivation, diversity, wellbeing, branding and resilience as the key topics covered by the speakers during a full day programme.
Anne Jamieson, CEO, Saxton Speakers Bureau, commented on the partnership: “The next two to three years for Saxton is all about growth and for us to achieve this we need to align with strategic partners. We see Get Global as a key partner for us moving forward and are thrilled to be involved with their 2019 event.
“At Saxton, we believe in the power of stories to drive positive change. We have carefully curated speakers for Get Global who will share stories that will leave audiences inspired to be the very best they can be,” Jamieson added.
The speaker line-up includes best-selling author and personal trainer, Michelle Bridges and, co-founder of Four Pillars Gin, Matt Jones. Curtis McGrath, ex-soldier and para-canoeist, will share his experiences and insights on overcoming adversity and Felicity Furey, engineer and entrepreneur, will look at millennial leaders and intergenerational leadership creating change.
Gary Bender, co-founder, Get Global believes the partnership will bring new opportunities and growth to the show.
“Get Global is a day with a purpose. Not only can attendees’ network and see great international products, but they can also hear from truly inspirational people,” said Bender.
“Some of us fall into the events industry from different careers and paths. It’s great to have speakers that people actually want to hear and learn from. We are thrilled to be partnering with Saxton’s for the first time and are pleased to welcome these five great speakers to our show,” added Get Global co-founder Donna Kessler.
Get Global will be held in The Gallery, ICC Sydney, 26 July 2019.
