Former business development director & senior manager with 25 years of IT sector experience in the office automation, networking, telecoms, audio visual, intelligent buildings & broadband fibre niches at FTSE 350 & SME management team levels.
I'm sometimes asked why I chose to become a full-stack digital marketer at the age of 46 after working in the IT sector for 25+ years. It's simple. Albeit the work was mostly enjoyable, by early 2011 I was tired of driving up, down & across the country to simply 'get to work' and started to research income alternatives that would eliminate excessive travel. This meant analysing the digital domain for opportunities, which I'd been active with since 1993. By mid-2012, my full-time digital marketing vocation was up & running and I now have 10,000+ hours of real world SEO & digital marketing experience in my rear view mirror.
I've past presented on various IT subject matters at conferences in the UK, Canada, Netherlands, France, Germany & USA with no desire to do so again & while I appreciate everyone has to self-promote to some degree, I'm a simple soul at heart & at my best working coalface on client accounts, ending each day with a walk out in nature with my beloved dog, Benji & fishing the local rivers on the weekends in open season.
While global domination is not an agenda item, achieving great results for a small portfolio of appreciative clients is.
