Multiple global brands, two continents and one social network: that's my story in a nutshell.
I've had the privilege of creating and executing strategies for some top international brands including Sony, Ford, Activision, 20th Century Fox, DreamWorks and Yahoo! But as the owner of London-based HERE/FORTH, I currently help business leaders decide how to best use rapidly changing and emerging technologies.
Before launching HERE/FORTH, I worked as Head of Social for Mindshare, the global media network, in charge of a team which created social strategies for clients including HSBC, Jaguar, Unilever and Three. Before then I worked in Los Angeles handling internal and external Corporate Communications at Myspace.
SO WHAT MAKES ME TICK? Evaluating emerging technologies, digital media, psychology and good design. When it comes to helping my clients however, I ensure their focus is on applying all of these to both the business and the real world.
NEED A SPEAKER? My public speaking portfolio has seen me standing in front of high calibre audiences such as Google, Microsoft, Coca-Cola and ASOS, as well as at industry conferences, where I speak on topics ranging from retail innovation to future-proofing your business.
I'm also asked to supply industry comment by the folks below (if I can help you let me know):
When I down tools I enjoy travelling, photography, blogging (Reuters, The Guardian, Cool Hunting) as well as updating the @themediaisdying Twitter network. I also volunteer my time and expertise for a host of charities including Stonewall, Crisis, Check 12 and The Diana Award.
