Keynote speakers confirmed for Office exhibition
by Annie Byrne
Diversified UK has secured vice chairman of West Ham FC, Karren Brady, as one of its keynote speakers at Office 2010.The debut show, which launches at Earls Court in September, includes Brady’s seminar among 50 sessions across five theatres, designed to attract personal and office assistants from across the country."Securing Karren Brady as a speaker really helps to set the right tone for the show," MD Carsten Holm tells Exhibition News. "We know the role of the modern PA has changed dramatically and they’re now among the most influential people in Britain’s offices. We hope to reflect this with this new exhibition."Other speakers announced include Judi James, an expert in body language and behavioural science. She is also a novelist and has her own Channel Five show, Naked Celebrity. "Office will look to treat its visitors as career-minded and aspirational professionals, something I believe other events do not do," adds Holm.
