Speaker Announcement:

Aardman Co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton have agreed to share their journey to securing their creative legacy in the UK at the EOA Conference 2019.

“In past years, while attending the EOA conference we’ve heard words of inspiration, education and – just occasionally – warning from those who’ve gone on the journey before us. In return this year we look forward to sharing our ‘one year on’ experience with the EO community.”
