Neil Thompson

Mr Neil Thompson

Founder & MD, The Delegate Wranglers Ltd

With 22 years experience in the event industry, Neil previously has worked for large corporates, communication agencies, and operated his own freelance event management business from 2005 until 2019 – organising and managing mostly pharmaceutical events all over the world.

Neil founded The Delegate Wranglers Facebook group in 2014 with the simple ethos being that members can share the huge expanse of information, expertise and experience that industry friends, peers and colleagues all have. Since then, under careful, friendly and positive management the group has organically grown to over 25,000 (highly engaged) members globally, with millions of pounds of business being traded on the group every month, as well as countless connections, advice and information being passed between each other. The group is widely respected by event professionals and supplier alike, with it's finger well and truly on the pulse of the industry

In 2019 Neil was named as M&IT Magazine’s Personality of the Year and more recently the group has achieved ‘Facebook Community Managed Partner’ status which gives Neil regular contact with Facebook HQ to help develop and grow his community. Neil speaks regularly on the events industry circuit and beyond, and will be sharing a panel at Createch (part of London Tech Week) with VP of Facebook Europe, Nicola Mendelsohn.
