Ben Leong

Melbourne, Australia

I connect people to other people, helping to identify gaps in skills and knowledge in networks and communities. I'm fascinated by the things that make communities grow and thrive.

Previously, I've worked on social media strategy and training for Australian government and non-profit groups. Before that I was a freelance communicator, editor and layout guy. Before that, I was a research chemist. Every job has given me something I still use today.

Right now, I'm in the final stages of writing up my PhD thesis - I research how small business managers use social media, with RMIT & the Smart Services CRC. I'm fascinated by the ways people learn about, adopt and use technology - particularly when they use it to make or maintain connections with others.
