Emily Baddeley
Head of Communications and Marketing at St. Christopher's Hospice

Working on everything from crisis communications and strategies to event marketing Emily's role is diverse to say the least!  Her experience at Cancer Research UK has shaped the way she approaches event marketing and, with a few small tweaks to current approaches, she has been able to increase participant numbers and income raised significantly. She also has a not-so secret love for gin, shopping and the sea!



Gabi Field
Head of Community and Events Fundraising for London at Stroke Association

Gabi leads a team of seven, raising £1.2M for stroke survivors. Leading on events including Virgin Money London Marathon, our flagship bike event and developing grassroots fundraising across London, her role has seen her increase income by £250,000 in her first six months in post. Her passion is on building relationships and  she sees the importance of getting to know fundraisers and their stories to convert them to lifelong supporters. Talking is what Gabi does best, in particular over a slice of cake of which she has probably baked herself.
