Our Partners & Sponsors

We need to say a huge thank you to our sponsors and partners for the event. Without them, it's quite simple, we wouldn't be able to do any of this. The Conference would not be happening. 

The companies and organisations listed below (in no particular order) have all been incredibly supportive and helpful, and I would urge you, please, to support them if you think they could ever help you in the future.

Sarah West Recruitment

SWR logo_FULL small (3).png

I was really keen to get Sarah West along to the conference, and it's great news that they'll be there. If you're in marketing and you're looking for a new job, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. The care that they take over finding not just any role, but the right role for a candidate is second to none. 

I've referred quite a few people to Sarah West over recent years and they've all ended up finding work with them. 

Plus, the lovely Robyn is an absolute delight to work with too - you can contact her on 01392 873813 or email her at I'm delighted that Robyn and Toni from Sarah West will be at the conference, and they'll have a stand there, if anyone is interested in starting to look for a new role! 

PL1 Events

If you're running an event in Devon and Cornwall, or even the wider South West, then you should really get in touch with Joanne Rendle at PL1 Events. (01752 388959)

As well as being a really good person who will literally do all she can to help your event go well, the organisation has so much experience and talent there, you'd be silly to ignore them. 

When I knew the Building Brands Conference was returning, Joanne was my first call. They've helped with lighting the event - you'll see what I mean when you're in the main lecture theatre. 

A huge huge thank you to Joanne and to PL1 Events for getting behind Building Brands. I'd be lost without your support.
