As we near the end of our series of ‘Female Leaders’ interviews from this year’s PI LIVE Europe at The Voicebox, we hear from the Founder who made it all possible.
If you missed it, catch up on our dynamic and empowering interviews with Avon's Paula Oyinkan, esbconnect’s Suzanna Chaplin, Snapchat’s Ruth Arber, impact.com Smita Pillai, and Affiverse’s Lee-Ann Johnstone.
Matthew Wood, Founder of Hello Partner, joined Julia Linehan, Founder and CEO of The Digital Voice, and Hello Partner journalist Jack Shute, as the last interviewee on The Voicebox stage to discuss how the partnership marketing industry can move the needle to improve and provide opportunities for women and minority groups to truly thrive and succeed in their roles, his predictions for the industry’s future, and plans for a bigger and better PI LIVE Europe next year.
Wood also explored the reasons for creating The Voicebox platform for PI LIVE and IMS Europe this year, explaining that the new initiative aims to provide a platform for underrepresented voices in the industry from leading brands, affiliate, media, and creative agencies to share their unheard insights and experiences, and how it will return with improvements next year.
Discussing the importance of celebrating success within the industry, Wood also highlights his thoughts and plans for Hello Partner’s award shows for the next year, as well as his hopes for a better future.
