A hilarious and insightful presentation by Anthony Topham, UK Director at FizzPopBANG, specialists in brand employee engagement


Before becoming a consultant and client director, Anthony worked in the media and entertainment industry…well that’s the safe version he tells his “grown up” clients. The truth is he was an actor.

Anthony's presentation will explore what he learnt about culture, employee engagement, leadership and the pitfalls all organisations face during times of growth and change from working on the hit and most importantly flop musicals in the West End of London. In particular, he draws from his time working with the Spice Girls and Jennifer Saunders on one of the biggest musical misfires of this century; “Viva Forever: The Spice Girls Musical”.

Designed specifically for HR Directors, leaders of People, and Talent and Culture bods, Anthony will provide a hysterical yet acute talk that you do not want to miss!

Join us at 8.00am for a coffee/tea and a muffin, presentation will begin at 8.15am
