My name is Phil Szomszor and I work as a public relations and social media consultant for Firefly Communications.
There are two sides to my role at Firefly: leading our business-to-business division and heading up digital services.
On the B2B side, this involves strategic support for accounts and taking a lead on new business, directly reporting to Firefly Group CEO, Claire Walker. I also handle consumer technology accounts and projects.
Firefly also makes a virtue of hardwiring social media and online PR into every campaign. But being web-based, it's a constantly moving discipline, so I work with the team to develop new services and continually fine-tune our offering.
I also act as a regular speaker and commentator on digital PR, participating in events for the likes of BlogCamp, Late Late Breakfast Show, London Bloggers' Meetup, Businesswire, Social Media Week, PR Moment, Social Media World Forum and our own events.
Finally, in my spare time I write a PR blog about technology, public relations and social media.
