Lynn is the Managing Director of Live Events at The Drum, leading a team who run over 20+ live events across the UK, USA and APAC. She also looks after global partnerships across the business. One of the key events she has developed is The Drum Digital Trading Awards programme, recognising the very best people producing the very best campaigns in programmatic, across the world. When Lynn started at The Drum 15 years ago, it was a tiny Scottish business with a handful of events and a magazine to its name, so it’s been an honour for her to have been part of the leadership team who grew it beyond its wildest dreams and is now a recognised award-winning business. And for it now to have global recognition and status, still makes her blush today (a solid trade of a Scot). Before The Drum, Lynn had a solid background in media and publishing. She is also a professional emcee/presenter having fronted over 100+ events including the Content and PITCH Stages at Web Summit, Global Ace Awards New York, Doubleclick Bid Manager Awards (division of Google) and The Drum’s major award shows. Audiences range from 50-700+ individuals. Lynn is also an experienced awards judge, having judged at Web Summit, Event Industry Awards Ireland and UK Event Awards.
