With growing demand driven by companies looking to support employee wellbeing and a rise in international clients, we are delighted to announce the appointment of a non-executive director.
Business advisor and entrepreneur Tino Nombro, who founded and sold digital marketing company Ambergreen and advises a number of other companies, will help manage Speaker Buzz’s growth.
Nombro, who is a board member of the Homeless World Cup Foundation, shares Speaker Buzz’s ethos of inspiring positive change and will help us develop our proposition to include long-term partnerships with clients, in addition to one-off motivational talks.
The growth stems from more companies, brands and organisations looking for new ways to enhance wellbeing at work and create healthy, positive working cultures that stimulate productivity and improve staff retention in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The news comes on the back of recent speaker engagements in the UK, plus South Africa, France, Dubai and the United States for clients including Coca-Cola, Edrington, Gleneagles, Allen & Overy, Ekimetrics and Standard Life.
Commenting on the advisory role at Speaker Buzz, Nombro said: “With its purpose-led mission to inspire positive change in people’s lives and society, Speaker Buzz is well placed to help employers as they seek to support their people in these challenging times. It’s never been more important for employers to manage and discuss topics such as mental health, wellbeing at work and diversity, and Speaker Buzz can provide that support.
“Debbie has done a great job in establishing the business and steering it through the transition to online events. I can see significant opportunity for growth in the UK and internationally, and I’m really looking forward to working with the team at Speaker Buzz as they continue to develop the business further.”
With online events becoming the norm and allowing companies to connect remote teams, we have also expanded our roster to meet demand. Recent additions to our now more than 40-strong roster include social entrepreneur Mel Young MBE, LGBTQ+ and Transgender campaigner Nour Shaker Fayad, renowned mountaineer Kenton Cool, and world record-breaking solo Atlantic rower Jasmine Harrison.
Speaker Buzz founder Debbie Byers said: “The last few months have been incredibly exciting with more events all over the world and new speakers coming on board. It feels like we’ve just scratched the surface of what we could achieve and with Tino’s experience and help we’re ready to take the next steps.”
