Introduction

Steve MacAlpine - founder of Social Insights. I launched my own business in 1993 and have successfully led brand and marketing projects for a wide variety of clients and industry categories.

Today, Social Insights operates as a consultancy working at the point where brand, design and the internet connect.

I stay sane and fit with a combination of kayak paddling on Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches, practicing Tai Chi and by spending time with my wonderful family.
