STOP PRESS: More unmissable Gala announcements!
27th September 2012
A second special VIP Guest and Speaker...
We're thrilled to welcome Managing Editor, Sam Taplin, back to our Gala and Spring Conference in January 2013, as a VIP guest and speaker.
Sam was a smash hit at his USBAH Gala and Conference debut earlier this year, and this time, in a publishing extravaganza, he will share the stage at the Conference with Publishing Director, Jenny Tyler, to unveil the very latest and greatest titles from our 2013 publishing list. As well as sharing a tale or two about how each book came to life, from conception to printing...
For those of you that haven't met Sam before, here's a little bit more about him:
Sam is Managing Editor in Usborne's Oxford office, and has been with the company for 14 years. During that time he's worked on just about every Usborne title, from poetry collections to sticker books. Recently he's been closely involved with the development of our soundchip and wipe clean series, as well as writing lots of storybooks, for very young children, the latest of which is Five-minute Bedtime Stories.
We're delighted to have Sam join us, and hope that you have those pads and pens ready, to note down ideas and inspirations from these two wonderful publishing guests.
Lots to look forward to in the year ahead...
Following on from a year that has seen so many new Team Leader promotions and, already, over 1300 new Organisers joining Usborne Books at Home, we have heaps to look forward to in 2013.
To celebrate, we'll be unveiling some very big surprises over the course of Conference day, but to add further mystery to the enigma which is USBAH, we will not be announcing a Travel Incentive in January... Oh no.. we have something EVEN MORE EXCITING planned to kick-start your year!
The plot thickens... Dare you risk not being the first to hear our incredible plans for January and beyond? Send in your reply form today, to guarantee your place (if you haven't done so already).
