Sarah Keates

Sarah Keates

Events Manager

Sarah is helping to manage our busy event calendar and curate a few of our events.

Her 15 years of experience in festivals and events, science communication, and creative technology, has led her to become an excellent event director, an advocate of Bristol and its creative tech hub, and recognise the importance of events to enable business growth, learning and development. 

Vanessa Champness

Vanessa Champness

Social Media Manager

Vanessa looks after all our social media activity here at TechSPARK and Bristol Calling. Before joining us, her career had taken her across Europe and Asia, working both for advertising agencies and then directly for Philips International, where she looked after global marketing for everything from hairdryers to TVs to MRI scanners. Now based in Bath, when she’s not championing the Bristol & Bath tech scene, Vanessa is kept absurdly busy with her three children. This leaves her with a combined 3 minutes a week to keep practising her frighteningly rusty Mandarin.
