- People who want to create a side hustle while at work and eventual make enough money that this matches or overtakes your wage.
- Students at uni or have just left and want to use all these digital skills to get the ideal job.
Now....Who Am I?
Many organisations are looking to answer the most popular question in digital and social media right now: ‘So What?’. Making sure staff, from management to interns, connects social media to their business objectives through thought leadership, awareness or part of their sales process is a must. Yet it can be very confusing….this is where I come in!
I have worked with thousands of brands and budding corporate entrepreneurs (Intrepreneurs) and have helped them go through a digital transformation by training them through this complex world. But don’t take my word for it, ask KPMG, Ogilvy, Tesco and many others organisations I have trained or consulted for.
I help translate the language of digital and social media for clients in multiple sectors as diverse as postal services (Royal Mail) to sitting on the Ofcom advisory committee showing how a ‘digital lens’ can attract new customers while strengthening existing relationships. I not only know how to do this, but I can teach you how to do it too.
I began my career in digital media 18 years ago as a humble chatroom moderator on Pop Idol and Friends Reunited (think Xfactor and Facebook in today’s language). Before becoming a producer for the digital station BBC Radio 1Xtra. I then became the Marketing Manager for Myspace.com and helped launch the social network in the UK at a time where iPhones didn’t exist. I then decided to branch out to teach, speak and help others find opportunities available by understanding how digital works for their business…and still do a lot of talks on why MySpace failed.
I’ve combined those skills into consultancy, high-end strategic workshops and development while creating a number of strategic frameworks to give organisation a simple plan with actionable steps forward. Think of me as an experienced and wise tour guide for tourists and explorers on the data river that is modern digital media.
