Speakers confirmed:

Unique Staffing, Fern Snailham



After working freelance in the promotions industry, Fern came across situations in which agencies would send anyone to promote the products, but who weren’t necessarily right for the role. Shortly after graduating Sunderland University with a first-class Business and Management degree, Fern started up her own promotional and event staffing agency – UNEEK Staffing.

Fern is driven to stream line processes and keep staff connected. She wants to challenge how promotional staffing agencies operate and create a real team spirit culture within the company to achieve an overall great experience for staff and great results for clients: www.uneekstaffing.co.uk



StreetAway, Rob Simmons


After a few years working in corporate insurance Rob studied at Glasgow University, where he was a representative of Student Enterprise. At this time, he had his first foray into entrepreneurship with a marketing platform for small, independent fashion retailers.

In his masters year studying Information Technology he met his, now, business partner Eric, and became a part of StreetAway in the early stages as the idea was being developed. 18 months on, the company has grown significantly and is going from strength to strength: www.streetaway.co.uk
