Our Story

Hearsay Began From The Want Of Something More Than The Usual Lectures And Talks That Simon (The Founder) And His Friend And Team Had Been Attending, After They Would Discuss The Topics At Length And The Want They Had To Continue The Discussion At The Time. What They Wanted Was A Space And Platform That Was About More Than Just Listening To A Speaker, A Space That Influenced Creative Conversation That Encouraged Opinion And That Let The Community Speak Openly. 

As Simons' Agency Was Built To Create Experiences, He Felt That It Was This Sense Of Experience That Was Being Forgotten At These Events. Believing That People Will Always Be Far More Engaged By The Things They Are Most Passionate About He Started To Form The Idea Around Hearsay. The Idea Of Offering A Space Where You The Audience Are Able To Be Part Of The Discussion. A Collaborative Space To Celebrate, Question And Reflect On The Industry. 

This Is Where We Are Right Now At The Beginning - The Start Of The Seed. There Are Many Long-Term Plans For Hearsay, Future Collaborations, Spin Offs And Events But For Now We Want To Concentrate On The Beginning, To Get It Right And To Start Spreading The Word Of Hearsay And The Philosophy Behind It.
