Meet the Team

We are a small, but perfectly formed, team:

Mark Littlewood, CEO

Kirk Baillie, Marketing & Operations

Kirk Baillie

Kirk moved to Cambridge from Paisley in 2012 and spent 7 years in the hospitality and leisure industry helping to match people with their perfect hotel stay or fitness and wellbeing membership – selling ‘hot and sweaty’ is no easy task!

Leading our Marketing efforts, Kirk brings with him a wealth of experience of caring about people’s needs; caring about design; and caring about how people interact with each other and the world around them.

Jed Brooke-Williams, Business Development

Jed began his professional career as a trained Actor/Singer in London where he found his passion in performing arts. He spent the last 4 years in sales with the National Citizen Service; supporting young people across the UK to gain valuable skills.

He supports the BoS Business Development and is passionate about the opportunities BoS brings to hundreds of like-minded professionals across the world.

In the middle of BoS Conf Spring 2021, Jed and his partner welcomed into the world their first child – leading to the first ever BoS Conf Baby Grow to be produced!

Jo Littlewood, Event Director

Jo Littlewood

Previously Jo spent 25 years working in theatre as a set designer. Somehow Mark managed to persuade her to swap model-making and press nights for bag-stuffing and VAT returns.

Jo hasn’t regretted it.
