Get Global Partners with ICMI to Educate and Inspire Announcing Transformational Business Leaders

23rd Jan, 2018

As part of a host of enhancements to Get Global 2018, the one-day MICE trade event dedicated exclusively to outbound product has announced a partnership with ICMI Speakers & Entertainers and the introduction of an educational Inspiration Corner on the exhibition floor. 

ICMI will bring highly acclaimed and inspirational speakers to present extracts of their current, industry relevant keynote presentations throughout the day.  The Inspiration Corner will offer a learning platform for attendees to further their industry and business knowledge. 

We wanted to offer an area where buyers and exhibitors alike could sit, relax, learn, be inspired and invigorated by the speakers from ICMI,” explained Get Global Director and Founder, Gary Bender. 

ICMI is globally renowned for working with some of the biggest names in the world. From celebrities, to sports stars, to high achievers in business – we knew our partnership would ensure Get Global attendees would have access to educational content and speakers at our event they may not have been able to listen to elsewhere,” concluded Donna Kessler, Get Global Director and Founder.

Viki Markoff, General Manager, ICMI Speakers and Entertainers spoke warmly about their partnership with Get Global, “Having seen the calibre of buyers and exhibitors that were attracted to the first Get Global event, we are thrilled to be delivering the Inspiration Corner. By providing some of the most influential business minds of our generation we hope to motivate and educate attendees by stimulating thought and debate when they return to their offices at the end of the event.”

One of the most exciting speakers announced today is Stephen Scheeler, former Managing Director, Facebook Australia & New Zealand. Under Stephen’s management, Facebook ANZ grew from start-up level to over US$1billion in annual revenue.

Speaking about his involvement with Get Global, “When speaking with smaller, more intimate groups, I like to be able to offer a personal perspective on industry trends and how they translate my 25 years of business learning and building, into ways they can grow and promote their own businesses. I’m looking forward to speaking at Get Global and using my experience to educate and inspire business development.”  

With over 1320 connections made at Get Global 2017, the 2018 event is set to really deliver on its promise – Where the World Meets and attract even more decision makers from around the world.
