ASAP are delighted to introduce the compère for the 2017 Annual Convention and ASAP Serviced Apartment Industry Awards, Frances Edmonds.
Frances is a truly international expert in the business of cross-cultural communication. After graduating with a Masters Degree in Modern Languages from Cambridge University,
Frances joined the Commission of the European Union in Brussels as an international conference interpreter. For over a decade, she worked to facilitate communication and cooperation within all the major international organisations (EU, EP, UN, OECD, WEU, UNCTAD) and between heads of state and government at their annual World Economic Summits. Her books on sport, politics and self-help are international best sellers and her understanding of business issues, gleaned from her own experience in helping creating a specialised construction company, led to her election as an Honorary Fellow of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs.
She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a Founder member and Fellow of the Professional Speakers Association and is in constant demand as a keynote speaker and moderator. Having moderated the European Relocation Professionals Association conference for the last 12 years, she also know a thing or two about the business of relocation.
