Hosted by Kindred, the Shortlist Party was the most exclusive influencer marketing event of the year, bringing together the greatest minds from across the ecosystem.
Held at the glamorous Private Members Club at the House of St. Barnabas, London, the Shortlist Party gave this year’s finalists the chance to mingle and share drinks, experiences and network with the industry’s elite.
Chris Henley (Sales and Partnership Manager, PerformanceIN) gave a welcome speech which led into a short presentation by Aaron Simpson (CEO, Kindred) focusing on how Kindred can help provide a charity twist to influencer marketing campaigns. Aaron was a key figure in the restoration of the House of St. Barnabas, which now raises money to help the homeless, showcasing the company’s values in giving back to the wider community and charity.
This presentation was followed by a speech from Rupa Shah (Ex ASA, MD of Hashtag Ad Consulting), who provided a series of funny anecdotes and insights into working at ASA, and how this has inspired her to establish her own company, Hashtag Ad Consulting.
With an electric atmosphere and smiles all round, the night was a resounding success, helping guests to make new relationships whilst strengthening existing connections.
