Global First London, October 9th

Join the meetup for independent thinkers building global-first organisations.

As we return for our third Global First event in London, we welcome you to become part of this network of people cultivating a global-first mindset in their companies, hear from two inspiring speakers and discover how you too can succeed and grow internationally.

Lorna Whelan, TripAdvisor

Lorna will be joining Lingo24’s Founder and President Christian Arno for a “fireside chat” on what the business requirement for localisation means to one of the world’s premier travel organisations. Supporting 340 million unique monthly users who have written about 500 million reviews, Lorna will share the challenges that TripAdvisor faces as an adopter of user-generated content which is multi-lingual and online community-driven.

Tony Matthews, Russian Post

Self-described as “Mr Russia Post UK”, Tony will be sharing unique insights from his experience with Russia’s national postal service, which handles billions of mail items domestically and internationally on an annual basis. Tony’s discussion will focus on how companies are successfully winning business in this market, and the importance of operational and commercial leadership, business development, senior account management, client relations, strategy, digital, and project management and delivery in e-commerce and logistics.

Why attend?

  • Tony Matthews and Lorna Whelan sharing their expertise on global trends, challenges and opportunities;
  • Open discussion diving into the detail of the challenges and opportunities of international success;
  • Plenty of opportunity to network with your fellow “Global First-ists”, and a trip to the pub after for food and drinks is a solid bet for those not rushing off.

Who should attend?

The event is free to attend for leaders in marketing, HR and comms at mid-large sized companies, and CEOs/COOs in fast growth venture-backed businesses.
