Our Speakers:

Ross Murray-Jones (YPlan)

Ross is part of the founding team behind venture-backed YPlan. Having witnessed their meteoric rise since inception and played an intimate role in developing the app's business model and fundraising to date, he now develops and executes strategies for growth; progressing the business through innovative partnerships with global brands. An ex-management consultant, Ross studied at both Warwick and ESADE business schools. 

Stephen Rosenthal (Google)

Stephen has been Google's UK Public Relations and Communications Manager since 2011, working on the fun consumer stuff, as well as the not so fun corporate stuff. Stephen's also heavily involved in Campus London, Google's seven-storey hub for startups in East London, and has been since its opening in 2011. He mentors several startups and has connected the national and international press with more than 100 of the UK's coolest startups. Prior to working at Google, Stephen worked in the British Government, as press officer to three Home Secretaries, which was mostly mind-numbingly boring by comparison.
