About the speakers:

Cindy Gallop

Cindy started up ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty New York in 1998 and in 2003 was named Advertising Woman of the Year.  She is the founder of, co-action software (and Harvard Business School case study) that enables brands and consumers to implement the business model of the future: Shared Values + Shared Action = Shared Profit (financial and social). She also founded, launched at TED 2009 – ‘Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference’ - and in 2013 launched social sex videosharing platform The Social Sex Revolution (the revolutionary part isn’t the sex, but the social) for which she has just raised $2million to scale. As a global sextech pioneer and champion, she is also raising the world’s first and only sextech fund . She speaks at conferences around the world and consults, describing her consultancy approach as ‘I like to blow shit up. I am the Michael Bay of business.’ Follow her on Twitter @cindygallop.

Amy Gray

Amy Gray has spent the past seventeen years building a thriving speaker management practice and guiding the speaking work of some of the coolest people on the planet:  Those at the intersection of incredibly powerful AND deeply good.  Their influence and reach make them powerful and they channel that power to drive meaningful change in the world.  Success and profit are not the end goals, they are metrics and mechanisms for driving positive change. Her clients include Steve Wozniak, the co-Founder of Apple; Aimee Mullins, TED All Star, actor, athlete, advocate and 2017 inductee to the National Women’s Hall of Fame; Amanda Palmer, rock star, author of The Art of Asking & tribe builder extraordinaire; Martha Beck, best-selling author of 8 books and counting, Oprah favorite and founder of a wildly successful life coach certification program, and Blake Mycoskie, Founder of TOMS and pioneer in the conscious capitalism movement.

Their ‘goodness’ is shown in a myriad of ways:  through their products and services, writing, music, acting, philanthropy, leadership style, and the way they treat other human beings.  They are typically flooded with opportunities to speak – yet speaking is only one element of their personal brand, so opportunities must be carefully explored against what is truly important to each client. The key is learning what appearances light them up and what they want their speaking to do as part of their personal brand.  From there, we craft and implement a custom strategy that serves that mission.  That strategy is carried out in a manner that is calm, capable and above all: Kind.  Kindness protects their hard won personal brand and creates an amplifying effect that creates global good will.
