Our Presenters

How do you do more with less.

This will be from a systems approach – not just technology, not just processes, having the whole teamwork together to make it happen.


Building a brand that means something.

This will incorporate being different and looking different; including using graphics to tell a story and maximising the benefits of child participation.

Both Keynotes will be followed by a panel of industry

leaders – discussing the points raised.

leader in ‘knowing a lot about a lot of things’; he will be

playing a key role in all the Panels and hosting a Round Table.


The highlight will be when Frank teams with John Mitchell to
