Alice Audley, 31, is the Founder and CEO of Blogosphere. She set up the business in 2013, which started as a magazine to curate the online world, and has been at the helm as Blogosphere expanded into events, launched its podcast and built out its influencer network.
Alice has interviewed the likes of Zoe Sugg, Casey Neistat, Lorna Luxe, Dina Tokio, Fun For Louis and Lydia Millen in the magazine, and the likes of Ogilvy, Facebook, Edelman, Gleam, MediaCom and The7Stars in the podcast.
