Senior International Event Coordinator
Holly Santandrea grew up with a deep appreciation for the arts, influenced by the world-class theatre offered in her hometown of Stratford, Ontario, as well as her father’s affinity for classical guitar.
With an Honours B. A. in Film and Communication Studies from York University, Holly started her career in the Television Industry with a focus on client services. Shortly thereafter, Holly took a leap of faith and moved to Canada’s west coast, where she had the incredible opportunity to travel across the world, working on conference logistics for dynamic and inspirational speakers. As a SENIOR INTERNATIONAL EVENT COORDINATOR, Holly brings the knowledge, experience, and charisma she gained while globe-trotting to the Speakers’ Spotlight team.
In her free time, you can find Holly out on a walk, or at one of Toronto’s many off-leash dog parks with her rescue dog Lucy, or actively involved with a local dog rescue, Save Our Scruff as Adoption Manager, assisting families with adopting a canine companion. She also enjoys a good Netflix binge, a group class at Goodlife Fitness, and daydreaming of what city she’ll travel to next.
