Sheila Smith
Born from the love of helping to connect people, and to see all businesses do more business, Sheila started a local networking group in 2010 which ran for 10 years.

Soon after she started the networking group, her many business contacts encouraged her to hold a Northamptonshire Business Expo and that’s where it all began.

Sheila is running several Expos now, including the latest addition of Leicester Business Expo, and in response to the restrictions brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, she has re-invented the Expo online.

In close collaboration with the team at Big Media, Sheila brought her knowledge of event organisation and management to bear, and helped steer the initial development of the brand new state-of-the-art software that has become the Virtual Expo platform.

Now that live events look set to re-emerge, Sheila is leveraging the knowledge gained in running virtual events to launch hybrid (live + virtual) events to maximise the advantages of both.

A truly inspirational person, she thrives on seeing other people connect and win the day!
