Presenter Details:

Andrew Vine is the Founder and CEO of The Insight Bureau, an agency representing top-level professional speakers, placing speakers and moderators into conferences, client events and internal company meetings. Andrew previously worked for 13 years at The Economist Group, specifically in the Economist Intelligence Unit and Economist Conferences. There he ran a regional network of CEO forums, Economist Corporate Network, and headed the sponsorship initiatives for Economist Roundtables and bespoke conferences. He left specifically to set up The Insight Bureau, which was Asia's first speaker bureau. Today, close to 100 economists, strategists, writers and authors choose The Insight Bureau to represent them, not only in Asia, but around the world. The firm’s key proposition is to bring thought-provoking speakers to senior executives, so that they are inspired -- and better equipped -- to lead their organisations forward in new and exciting ways.

Andrew is also the author of a book entitled "Honestly Speaking: the insider's secrets of hiring professional speakers to deliver outstanding events" which will takes readers on a comprehensive journey through the sometimes mysterious, often baffling and occasionally notorious world of professional speakers. The book is written for anyone who finds themselves responsible for the programme of an important meeting or event, and aims to raise the bar in terms of knowledge -- and therefore confidence -- in hiring professional speakers to achieve great results.
