Built upon Trevor Foley’s extensive network and long-standing relationships across the global events industry, tfconnect is a strategic partner for organisers, venues and suppliers.

At its core, tfconnect is both an event organiser and a unique, specialist, global network of talent, connecting senior players in the industry with top-level roles and matching events professionals to the right businesses – from mid-level Sales and Marketing talent, to Event Directors, to CEOs.

Working as a partner (not a recruiter) and with a quality over quantity approach Рtfconnect specialises in hard-to-find senior and international talent. We are engaged with over 30 clients, working on roles across 20 different countries.

tfconnect also offers smart services to help grow clients’ businesses – including big data insights / solutions, insurance products, consultancy and events software. Alongside UFI, tfconnect is the co-organiser of the Global CEO Summit – THE networking and insight event for global industry CEOs.

Since 2008, tfconnect has been committed to helping events businesses of all shapes and sizes achieve their goals and rise to the challenges of an ever-changing, global industry.

Hayley Makepeace

The wonderful Hayley Makepeace was part of the tfconnect family for just 20 short months but left an incredible impression on all the people she touched during her time with the business.

Hayley very sadly lost her brave and positive battle with bowel and liver cancer just eight days short of her 30th Birthday.
