A passionate leader with over 28 years’ experience within the digital marketplace working for large corporate organisations such as SAP & Oracle to start ups like US Robotics, Palm, Kenshoo & Hootsuite. In fact I helped build the original internet when AOL, Compuserve, & UUnet were just starting up. Yes I sold modems that had 9.6 kbps horsepower in those days and when we moved to 56 kbps technology I genuinely felt we were changing the world. Little did I Know ……. I have a proven track record in creating, building & leading high performance businesses. I just love what I do and do what I love. It’s always about the people, the craic and the outcome. Leave a legacy that you can be proud of. I am a committed supporter of Speakers for Schools in the UK and take time to present to school kids on a regular basis. These Digital Natives are our future. Outside of this crazy digital world I love all things family and life.
