I'm the Social Media, Search and Advertising Leader at EY.

I am a digital communications and marketing specialist with a decade of experience working for large global organizations with two letter brands, including EY and GE. I specialize in social media and related technologies, and in unlocking the value they provide to organizations for engaging with clients and potential customers, alumni and potential recruits.

I can often be found roaming Technology and Marketing conferences either as a speaker/panelist or as a delegate. In either case I can usually be found sitting awkwardly on the floor by an electrical outlet.

Speaking experience includes:

DMA2014 (Direct Marketing Association): "Using social media to establish your professional identity and benefit your career", October 2014

DMA2013 (Direct Marketing Association): "Using the power of social media to make the right connections for your career", October 2013

TEDxEY: "The future of social media", December 2011

- DMA2013 (Direct Marketing Association): "Using the power of social media to make the right connections for your career", October 2013

Formerly created UK sketch comedy outfit Pappy's Fun Club, and was a stand-up on the London comedy circuit. Created The Institute, an immersive Hallowe'en comedy horror show. Contributed stories to Stand Up Put Downs, by Rufus Hound. There's a photo and everything. Did some TV (BBC, C4) and radio, though it was a long time ago.

I have a wife, a baby and a bloody dog.
