On Tuesday, 21st March 2023, VMAGROUP saw the return of the ‘Meet the Author’ series with the wonderful Kim A. Page, keynote speaker and author of The Right Kind of Loud. Read below to find out more!

So, what is Meet the Author?

Hosted and organised by VMAGROUP’s Crystle Pearce, the ‘Meet the Author’ event series is a warm and welcoming place for all communications professionals to gather over some drinks and listen to some of the finest wordsmiths of communications literature. With previous guest speakers including Jenni Field (award-winning podcaster and author of Influential Internal Communication) and Lesley Allman (author of the Amazon best-seller, Better Internal Communication), last Tuesday 21st March we saw a 3rd successful event with the wonderful Kim A. Page – keynote speaker and author of The Right Kind of Loud. For those who have been to these events before, it was a chance to reunite with fellow communicators and collect their next ‘Meet the Author’ bookmark!

Finding your voice:

With an interactive activity and engaging discussion, Kim presented the key theme of her work and passion: finding your own voice. Her book, The Right Kind of Loud is a must-have manual for all communications professionals offering advice on how to be a ‘best-in-class’ communicator, touching on topics such as body language, active listening, navigating your workplace and seeking audience engagement. Through a game, designed by Kim, this ‘Meet the Author’ event prompted a lively discussion about finding your voice in today’s noisy world. We discussed the challenges of living in a multichannel communication workplace and how we can overcome this.

Missed this event?

Fear not! VMAGROUP has created a series of ‘Meet the Author’ events, designed with you in mind. The next event is due to be hosted on the 25th April 2023 at Hanover Communications and we will be welcoming Professor Emeritus Anne Gregory, co-author of Strategic Public Relations Leadership.

Noted as a ‘fantastic platform to meet like-minded professionals’, VMAGROUP’s ‘Meet the Author’ events establish an engaging space whereby individuals can truly ‘expand their skill-set and create a network’ (Niall Ford, IC Analyst from Alvarez & Marsal). This really is a series of events not to be missed – you will be sure to come away with nuggets of information and a stronger network… and if that’s not enough, how can you say no to a drink on VMAGROUP and a free bookmark for your collection?

“I love all the Meet The Author events and this one [with Kim Page] didn’t disappoint. It was different, and with many learnings to take not only as an IC professional, but for different life skills. Kim was super engaging and I loved the interactive session in the end. I can’t wait for the next one!”
