Held at London’s YouTube Space on the 18th of October 2018, the YouTube Creator Recharge event brought together some of the fastest growing YouTube creators in the country today. Attending the event on behalf of Champions (UK) plc was our Head of Social Media and YouTube star, Matt Sibson.
Best-known as the creator of the ancient history channel Ancient Architects, Matt’s ventures into the world of YouTube have seen him offer fascinating interpretations of some of the world’s most iconic ancient sites. As a result, his channel has amassed an impressive 161k subscribers to date – a number that continues to increase at a rapid pace.
Affording invited guests the opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn from their peers, the event played an important role in supporting an ever-expanding YouTube community. In line with this idea, the occasion featured an array of guest speakers who have each achieved significant success on the video-sharing platform.
From singer Samantha Harvey to fashion vlogger Jim Chapman and English teacher Lucy Bella Earl, the event’s keynote speeches were aimed at inspiring the next generation of YouTube icons. Aside from providing an opportunity to meet YouTube staff, attendees were also given the chance to participate in a variety of workshops, helping them to gain insight into the creative process of their fellow content creators. Commenting on the event, Matt said:
"It was a fantastic experience to have been able to meet so many like-minded people. The event provides an invaluable opportunity to learn from one another's experiences, as well as motivating the YouTube community to continue creating unique content."
Matt’s own YouTube journey began whilst working on his debut book. Having originally created his YouTube channel as a way of establishing his name, he soon discovered that he’d filled a gap in the market. As his channel continued to grow, Ancient Architects became home to a vast community of people interested in the many mysteries of ancient civilisation. Today, Matt is one of the most prolific content creators in his field, helping to inspire a multitude of viewers across the globe.
