Founded in 2005 by Kim ‘Kiki’ Keating and Matt Symonds, the MaKi Network organises the leading international media conferences in Europe, Asia, the GCC and Latin America between the media, business schools and universities.

Our industry experience and passion for people means that we have great connections with pretty much all the top schools worldwide, and can help the media source the right people and ideas for their coverage.

Our personal database of editors, reporters and bloggers - built over a 19 year period - is hard to match. We believe that unconditional help, responsiveness and a sense of fun is a smarter and more enjoyable way to work in the media industry.
