“We were looking for that key speaker who we knew would wow our audience and raise the cities profile. After intensive research into the tech, digital and media space we decided to approach Steve to see if he was up for the challenge. With his acclaimed reputation in the computing world, it was a no-brainer to try and get him on-board as we believe he will truly resonate with our delegates. He is obviously one of the most famous people in the world when it comes to the tech space, so we were thrilled when he agreed to join us and our exhibition here in Manchester.”
