Brittany Filler is the founder of Cherry Pick Talent, an influencer marketing agency specialising in talent and campaign management. Tired of hearing the influencer space was the "wild west" Filler set out to create a new kind of influencer agency; something that allowed talent the freedom to do what they do best and clients to reap the rewards when it comes to powerful ROI and brand awareness that does the bragging for them.
She'll be heading to PGC Helsinki Digital to discuss the new channels available to influencers, as well as ways they can currently thrive online.
