DAHLIA BASAR, HEAD OF PARTNERSHIPS

I have been working in the world of TV, digital media strategy and technology for almost 16 years.  I left Google/YouTube last year after 13 years to embark on a sabbatical having been brought on at Google to start the UK sales team.  During my year off I have gone on a mission of mind and business expansion, continued on leading aid and relief efforts to refugees and ultimately redefining the next leg of what my professional journey will look like.

With a background in psychology I entered the corporate world as a consumer insight consultant.

REBEKAH DOBSON, HEAD OF TREASURY

Finding my passion for Law many moons ago, it was a natural progression from college to Univeristy to Law School. I stepped away from the traditional avenue of becoming a solicitor and found myself in the ever fast paced and challenging world of start-ups. I then move in to Project Management in corporate finance and was lucky enough to find myself in NYC. Since returning to the UK I've had a wealth of experience in the legal teams of finance/real estate world and start-ups and have met many wonderful people along the way.
