Speaking Praise

Caroline Makepeace from Y Travel Blog has been a marquee speaker at two Travel Blogger Exchange Conference (TBEX) events in North America. Attendees raved about both her presentations–one for the travel industry and one for fellow bloggers. Her session on e-mail marketing was one of the most popular ones of 2018 and was rated as a favorite by many survey respondents. She also participated in a panel on launching a successful blog, from a position of running one of the most most-visited travel content sites in the world. She is an engaging speaker who is well-prepared, comfortable on stage, and generous with her time.”

– Tim Leffel, Conference Director, TBEX North America

Caroline’s natural presenting style and honesty about the realities of blogging gave her session a freshness and relatability that was highly rated by our attendees. We look forward to having Caroline back at our future events.

Caz had everyone’s full attention during her recent presentation at Tasting Australia’s Words to Go culinary and travel bloggers forum in Adelaide, South Australia. Her engaging tales of life on the road with her family were an insight into following one’s dreams, using social media and blogging to market a destination and the challenges along the way. Caz’s spirited presentation inspired our delegates and reinforced that travel is extremely rewarding and adds to a person’s growth
