Men only panels continue to be a feature of marketing, media, public relations and technology conferences and events.

Gender parity should be a minimum goal.

I published a list of women who are brilliant speakers for International Women’s Day this week.

These are all people I’ve worked with or heard speak recently. Every single one is inspiring and has taught me something new.

The list includes four of my colleagues from Ketchum's office in London.

  • Denise Kaufmann, partner and CEO, Ketchum London – building, managing and growing a talent led organisation.
  • Julia Menninga, head of learning & development Europe, Ketchum – applying new forms of media to build community-led learning environments.
  • Deidre Murphy, partner and COO, Ketchum London – managing international public relations campaigns across borders.
  • Jo-anne Robertson, partner and deputy CEO, Ketchum London – modern corporate affairs practice, building and growing a public relations agency.
