Biography

I am course-leader for our single honours Media & Marketing Degree Programme, and I teach on all Media Courses, our Digital and Social Media Degree, and our new Creative and Professional Writing Degree.

I am currently helping to develop the University's professional marketing training offer, and mentoring several businesses.

I have led several teams to success with social media inside and outside of their organisations, creating online communities of customers, employees and stake-holders that are engaging and bring about real learning and change.


I'm a strategic social business consultant, helping clients articulate and deliver practical strategies for adopting and embedding technology in working and learning practices. I spend a lot of time creating and managing online communities, and my expertise is in engagement strategies to bring people together online to share, to work and to learn.

I founded Reach Further, the UK’s first social media consultancy in 2006, and have helped thousands of businesses understand and realise the potential of social media through workshops, seminars and consultancy.
