When looking at the letters A to Z initially, we couldn’t not do K for our Show Director, now could we? The whole glorious Show was the brainchild of Kirsty and a host of her geniemates en route back from RootsTech2018. With so many people saying, “Why don’t you have a big Show in the UK?”, the decision was made on the plane home. There needed to be a NEW Show!
So, Kirsty quickly set about raising the funds to book the venue and surrounded herself with an amazing Board from across the globe. Kirsty was interviewed about THE Show in the early days by Lisa Louise Cooke (you can watch the video here) and social media was rife with all the news about the speakers who were travelling over, many for their first speaking engagement in the UK, and people booking their travels from various corners of the globe.
Kirsty kept her head down and just got on with the job and in fact, many people didn’t even realise she was involved until recently. Organising a Show of this size is certainly not an easy task, but one which Kirsty has taken in her stride, as well as juggling her many other tasks…. running her own business, co-chairing an overseas society conference and chairing no less than three voluntary societies (two worldwide!). They say if you want something done, ask a busy person…. That’s our Kirsty!
Your Show Director
