MCs "UNBRIDLED" - Paul Bridle & David Bridle

As is our trade mark, PCMA is doing things in new and innovative ways. This year we are not just bringing back Paul Bridle, MC of last year's Innovation Conference, but we are bringing his son as well! Come prepared to experience the plenary stage from the perspective of two different generations.

Paul and David are Father and Son and have successfully worked together in business for over ten years. Paul is a business leader who also speaks on business performance and leadership, and is known for his ability to unpack information in a way that people understand and can use it. David describes himself as a 'Tekkie" as he loves technology. He is a photographer and a videographer, and also speaks and teaches on social media for business.

As joint MC's they will not only make sure we have a great conference and get the most out of the speakers, but they will also bring the perspective of two generations. This should make it entertaining as well as bring some interesting perspectives to the event.
