About The Speaker
Sue Fennessy is a serial tech entrepreneur who has spent the last 30 years creating disruptive businesses in the digital economy. Fuelled by her obsession with the waste and inefficiencies in the 550 billion dollar ad distribution system, she built WeAre8. Flipping the system, WeAre8 cuts out the tech middlemen who are stripping people of their economic value and enables people to be valued and paid every time they watch a brand video. Better yet, donations are made to charities at the same time, so millions of people and thousands of brands are connecting to solve the world's biggest problems. Starting her first business at 21 years of age, Sue is a passionate activist for diversity in tech leadership and was highlighted by Forbes in 2017 as a leading innovator. She is on a mission to address massive global problems by making it easy and fun for millions of people to participate, all while making ad delivery more effective for brands. Formerly she successfully built and sold 2 companies in Asia Pacific and was Founder and CEO of the world's leading media data aggregation business, Standard Media Index.
