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.
