Abi Birrell

"Facilitating peoples' inspiration, seeing the spark in their eyes, and being surrounded by the buzz of innovation - that's why it is so exciting. I love the work that I do because it helps build networks, strengthen partnerships and encourages people to think outside the box."

Abi is the Head of Events for Caribou Digital and works across a number of programs including the newly launched Strive Community, which will empower five million small businesses to survive and grow by going digital. Previously, Abi worked for the GSMA for eight years on Mobile for Development and Mobile Identity, leading their event strategy and launching the Mobile for Development Summit in 2013. After the GSMA, Abi did a short stint at Canonical where she was responsible for all the events for the Ubuntu brand. Abi holds a Human Genetics degree from the University of Nottingham and a Masters in International Business and Global Management from Regents University in London. Abi is based in London.
