Our CEO – Mary Baird-Wilcock, CSEP will be presenting to the judges and audience before taking part in a short Q&A.
Mary will be pitching to win the prize for our latest offering – The Simplifiers Podcast. It’s an interview style show which takes (sometimes) tricky and complex topics in business and in life…and simplifies them.

Mary has 14+ years experience as an entrepreneur and event planner in both America and England.

That includes wedding planners, event producers, florists, designers, venue managers and more. However, the topics covered are also highly relevant to wider industries. That includes creatives like those working in PR, Marketing, Social Media… the list goes on!
The other finalists include Savi, Worklight, and I’m Not From London so we’re expecting the competition to be FUN!
