Meet the keynote speaker

Following the roundtable discussions, Jenniffer Camacho, Head of Mobile Products at Nespresso took to the stage to discuss how the beverage company is crafting user-centric apps.

Speaking about the Mobile & App Masterclass, Yodel Mobile CEO and Founder, Mick Rigby, told Mobile Marketing Magazine: “I think it’s a great opportunity for us as an agency to meet brands and businesses that may not necessarily be aware of what the ecosystem is like.

“It’s a chance for them to see and learn new things, and for us to share some of our expertise in a friendly environment where they can ask the questions they really want to ask. Breaking down those barriers is an important part of these kinds of events.”

He continued: “Being here today means a lot of businesses requesting our services. Events like this are great from an outbound perspective, where we meet businesses that aren’t necessarily already on our radar or vice versa.

“These relationships can develop into client-agency relationships fairly quickly, or they could take years to come to fruition. But it’s just a good way of introducing the agency to businesses that may not know who we are.”
