AVA Live has announced that the keynote speaker at its inaugural AVA Live event in June will be Alastair Campbell, who’s  best known for his role as Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and Director of Communications and Strategy.

AVA Live
Alistair Campbell will be in the thick of it…

By any measure it’s a marquee signing for the AVA in their mission to host an event that’s both useful and entertaining. Regarded as forthright, and sometimes controversial, Campbell is an astute business and political commentator; a supporter of openness and a champion of bringing mental health issues to the fore.

At AVA Live, Campbell will share his knowledge on strategy, introducing change into organisations and crisis management. Afterwards, members of the audience will be invited to ask questions in a ‘no holds barred’ forum.

His book – one of 14 he’s written – Winners and How They Succeed, is a Number 1 best-selling analysis of what it takes to win in politics, business and sport.

Campbell will be supported at AVA Live by a range of speakers, including politicians, businessmen and marketeers. On top of these debates and speakers, there will also be a range of workshops and seminars aimed at improving visitors’ chances of achieving business and personal success. Topics on the agenda include digital marketing, micro-markets, sustainability, plastics and recycling, social media and more.
