Tell us how you got started in the digital/creative/tech space... 

I was a Creative Director in advertising and marketing from the late 80's onwards and launched a Mobile Marketing Agency in 2000 with the advent of mobile phone technology having mass consumer availability. 

 

What’s your current role and what do you enjoy most about it? 

I’m Digital Creative and Tech Lead and am responsible for guiding the team in their business support for these sectors as well as hands on  advice and guidance for businesses we support. 

 

I treat and think of every business as my own and get massive satisfaction from imparting and guiding the organisations I support towards achieving their potential. 

 

Why Manchester? 

Its truly the UK's second city and I always enjoy travelling south when I head home at the end of the day.
