The Simplifiers recognised in TOP 10: the Creative Class 2016 of Nottingham

By July 8, 2016Uncategorized



The Simplifiers have been inducted into Nottingham’s Creative Class 2016, ranking our business within the Top 10 in the region for high growth, innovation and celebrated success.

And we couldn’t be more thrilled…

As a woman-led business, we are leading the charge in diversity in the tech scene, both locally and nationally.  As a member of The Creative Class, they have chosen us to represent Nottingham and the growth potential of the city’s economy.


The Simplifiers specialise in three areas:

  • producing non-traditional large-scale events (corporate, weddings + social) that make a positive impact
  • providing innovative intern training tools and a global network of mentors through The Apprentice Program for SMEs all over the world that train and mentor interns/apprentices
  • delivering keynote presentations that transform everyday people into superhero mentors who empower interns & grow their business

Intern training, simplified.

Working with our clients both locally in Nottingham and all over the world, we are unveiling big plans for growth through our innovative software, simplifying how mentors and small businesses empower their interns.  We are also looking to attract and train the very best talent locally to join our team in the coming months.

Mary Baird-Wilcock, CSEP, CEO and Senior Event Planner of The Simplifiers, shared:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be one of the ten Creative Class members. We love being in the heart of it all, having our offices in the Creative Quarter and taking part in not only the growth of our business, but also the shaping of this great city.  As Event Planners, we bring 13+ years of award-winning experience to the table, giving access to large brands who now want to produce live events in Nottingham.  As Mentors, we are excited to see the global network of mentors continue to grow with The Apprentice Program.”

The Creative Class recognition comes just one day after The Simplifiers launched their new website, attracting attention within the events industry globally.
