Live sessions

Listen and learn from the people in your industry. Our live accessmatters sessions are the furthest from a webinar you can imagine.

Hear from a PR & comms professional and understand their story. Engagement for these sessions is encouraged so expect plenty of time for questions from both our host and the audience. Not a slide in sight!

Melissa Lawrence, chief executive of the Taylor Bennett Foundation, talks to us about her experience working for a social mobility charity in professional and financial sectors and the positive stories and challenges she’s faced since joining the Taylor Bennett Foundation.

Julian Obubo, partner and head of diversity and inclusion at Manifest spoke about the importance of developing a diverse agency and how we can all be anti-racist.
