Chief Digital Bod and Social Business Architect with Next Dimension Media ...

An IT & Comms specialist with a 38+ year career. It's actually 50 years this year since I first became embroiled in the computing circus - as a very young user.

Latterly a start-up specialist with extensive experience in channels to market. Well seasoned troubleshooter for IT Vendors. I make businesses grow.

For 20 years from 1988 onwards I was on the board on UniforumUK and InterForum - 3 times chair. In that capacity I was a prolific mediator in IT projects and management of channels to market.

And today, I'm right in the guts of Social Business - making it happen.

All the links below are for either my own social/home sites, companies that I am (or have been) involved in assisting, or very close business partners. You may find something to interest you! If you think I've missed you - let me know.

In social computing terms, my history is quite long. I was in the first 120,000 of users on LinkedIn with a current following of circa 6300. Klout now rates me in high-60's, Peerindex low 70's. Kred has me rated at 920+ (of 1000) for Influence with an Outreach Level of 10 (of 12).

My main Twitter account has circa 44K high quality followers and I operate some quieter channels too. I architect social business process flow & curate and moderate groups on LinkedIn up to 905K people in size.

Through a business merger I also now have added reach to more than 1.5 million people in LinkedIn. In fact - NextDmedia - our partner company in Seattle operates a single group of more than 900,000 folks - Linked:HR

In December 2011, I was honoured to receive the Top Business-to-Business Golden Twitter Award at Wembley Conference Centre, London, UK.

If you need help in the Social Galaxy - I can probably contribute. If you're a start-up looking for ways forward - I'm an advanced bootstrapper. Network power better than cash.

If you're in business and want your "Social" sorted - I'm the one to come to.
