“The Oystercatchers events are one of very few I make an effort to go to. A no pressure and collaborative environment. People attend to hear great case studies, learn best practice and make themselves into better marketers through Peer-to-Peer networking. What’s to miss?”

Abi Comber, Head of Brands and Marketing, British Airways
