I have 15 years experience as an educator, manager, entrepreneur, marketer and technologist.
Some of my achievements include;
As a technologist, entrepreneur and marketer; I founded GiffGaff.com, and grew this ground breaking online marketplace into the leading B2B marketplace, valued at over $1 billion (adjusted). I set up subsidiary business and technological operations on 4 continents – Asia, North America, Australia and Europe. I employed and managed over 2,000 people.
As an innovator, strategist and marketer; I founded the SENSA project, and wrote a plan to transform the UK’s third largest industry, the music industry, from a traditional model to a digital / online model. I convinced over 2,000 businesses to participate in my plan, and effectively digitally transformed the industry. The businesses that did not participate mostly failed and disappeared. The project has now generated over $10 billion for the UK economy & created employment for tens of thousands of individuals.
As an educator; I founded the not-for-profit Silicon Beach in 1998 in Brighton, UK & Sydney Australia. I organised and / or presented at over 1,000 seminars in 4 countries, attended by over 50,000 people. Since 2010 I have also been involved in the delivery of formal education at a number of educational institutions, and have delivered formal classroom based training to over 500 classes / 10,000 students.
I have also made a lot of mistakes, big and small, including several business failures that cost me millions of dollars. I hope I’ve learned a few lessons from those painful experiences.
In my spare time I sit on a number of not-for-profit boards assisting charities with strategy and financial management. I write software, compose music, write plays, keep physically fit and enjoy sports. I am currently commencing my PhD.
I’m always looking for new challenges, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you have something interesting to discuss on firstname.lastname@example.org.
