Confex 2009 announces keynote speakers

Hamish McRae, Ruby Wax and Kelvin MacKenzie will be all delivering the keynotes at this year’s International Confex show from 24-26 February 2009 at Earls Court. They will be sharing some insight into the economy, their backgrounds, as well as imparting words of wisdom and hoping to inspire the audience as part of the free Confex Knowledge seminar programme.
“In the current economic climate it has never been more important to ensure you keep ahead of the changes in the industry and be in a position to respond to them,” said event director Duncan Reid. “Confex Knowledge can give you the inspiration to do this and I expect to see even more visitors look to take advantage of the free seminar content this year.”
Hamish McRae is the principal economic commentator for The Independent newspaper and has also won several awards for his journalistic work. He will be discussing the economy and the shift of economic power to Asia, as well as how technology interacts with human capital to shift competitive advantage.
Meanwhile, the outspoken Ruby Wax will be entertaining and inspiring delegates, having swapped three decades of working on stage, TV and radio for a new direction. Following her completion of a MSc in Psychotherapy, Ruby now inspires corporate leaders through informative workshops that encourage a deeper and more direct level of communication with clients and colleagues.
Finally, former editor of The Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, will be stimulating lively debate at the show.

In addition to the three keynote speakers there will be a further 55 free seminars over the three days of Confex, including a session by former finalists on BBC TV’s The Apprentice Kristina Grimes and Jennifer Celerier. They will be discussing their own experiences in creating and delivering an event in six months. There will also be seminars from events industry associations Eventia, EIA, AEO, SITE, HBAA and MPI.
