Story
Tagline
Communicator, blogger and podcaster. Occasional test pilot of shiny new objects.
Introduction

In January 2016, I joined IBM as a Senior Business Consultant based in London. I'm part of IBM Social Consulting, a global team located in the UK, USA, Japan and Australia.

I'm an entrepreneurial business communications professional with a curiosity for tech and how people use it (or don't). An early adopter (and leaver) and experimenter with social media. A blogger and podcaster. Co-founder of the FIR Podcast Network. Extensive public speaking on communication, digital media, social business and issues related to organizations, people and behaviours.
