Twenty-three years ago I started one of the first specialist web design companies, then enjoyed a career as an industry leader and founder of several innovative digital creative and strategy agencies. Before the switch to consultancy this included being Chairman at pioneering eCRM firm Underwired, CEO of The Conversation Group and Adjunct Professor at Hult International Business School (MBA and Masters programs). You can read more on LinkedIn or in Wikipedia.

Since 2016 I’ve been on the central organising team and am UK lead at People-Centered Internet, chaired by the Internet’s co-inventor and architect Vint Cerf and co-founded by CRM’s inventor Mei Lin Fung, based in Palo Alto.

My consultancy work focuses on agency launches, positioning, fast growth, maximising exit value, and M&A including preparation, negotiation strategies and strategic due diligence. I am also an expert in the applications of Blockchain and lecture and consult on its impact on ā€“ and the opportunities for ā€“ businesses.

Outside of work I’m an adventure-lover and Burning Man regular.
