Owner of the Billionaire Ladies Club, a growing global network of highly aspirational women looking to transform the world through entrepreneurship, Naomi has fascinated audiences with the essence of what really makes digital communications so powerful, why digital innovation is such an important tool of reconnection & identity and what every digital marketer needs to know before structuring a communication program.

Expert's comment

"It is a real pleasure to participate in EST's Media LIVE! event, especially alongsidesuch an interesting range of industry speakers.  The biggest plaudits should always go to the student attendees though.  The Media LIVE! audiences are as engaged, challenging, passionate, talented and articulate an audience of young people as you could hope to meet!"

Overall the media conference was excellent for relevance and the students fournd it around a 9 or 10 for engaging.

Sir John Deane's College

On site support was excellent.  Staff were friendly and accommodating whatever the time of day.

Hereford Sixth Form College

I cannot recommend this trip enough, I’ve already started plugging it to other media teachers in other schools!

Homewood School

My Media students loved the conference, they were engaged and felt that the information presented was relevant and gave them food for thought. The speakers were all excellent and the content was relevant to what the students are learning especially the A2 media programme. The students highly enjoyed it!
