Influencing 2020

February 6 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A social media and content creation conference with a different #imperfectlyperfect

Think bigger…. speakers, workshops, panel, bar/cafe for networking and more.

As always, the theme of this event is being imperfectly perfect and authentically YOU on social media – this conference is about story sharing, interactive speakers, making connections, creating ace content for an audience, being bold, being real ….this is not a “how to” but instead is an empowering #ganon

This is the only event of it’s kind in the North East and i’m mega excited to be bringing it to Newcastle for 2020.
