Grant Collier, Head of Marketing for the PPMA Group, said: “We’re delighted to have confirmed Justin King as the headline seminar speaker at this year’s PPMA Show. Justin is one of this country’s most widely respected business figures and I’m sure his discussion will provide valuable insight for both visitors and exhibitors.
