Global First London, October 9th

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

After the success of our event in June, we’re excited to repeat the same formula in the same venue, and looking forward to more inspiring discussions with two fascinating speakers.

Tony Matthews, UK Business Development Manager, 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.

Lorna Whelan, Senior Director, Localisation, 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.

Why attend?

  • Tony Matthews and Lorna Whelan are two industry-leaders with truly unique experiences in the global e-commerce space;
  • Open to questions for further insights not available to the wider business community;
  • Chance to network in a relaxed format with colleagues who face their own unique challenges and opportunities.

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.
