"I look forward to contributing towards the SBC success story, and I am confident that our 2023 conference content will further reinforce SBC's position as the provider of unmissable industry events." Brain is the latest hire in a vast recruitment drive by the media and events company, which has increased its global headcount by over 40% year to date.
