If you read this post, you’ll soon realise that I’m not promoting a beauty or fashion event or product, but rather a digital event that I’m counting down the days to.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll love learning as much as I do – especially about digital – and attending talks where thought leaders share their insights and opinions, as well as info on current trends and developments. What if I told you there was a big digital event coming up, where some major thought leaders would be speaking? Sounds amazing right?

Well this exciting event I am referring to, is called The Digital Edge 2015, and here are 10 reasons why you can’t miss it:
