  • delivered across 3 continents, in more than 9 cities including London, Berlin, Finland, Paris, New York, Cleveland, Toronto, Sydney and Shanghai
  • created 6 great jobs at Bamboo Crowd, welcoming Sam, Kate, Laura, Chelsea, Matt and Ora to our team & delivered 5 brilliant events that built advocacy and supported the growth of our industry

We launched 3 new offers…
