Hi I'm Will - 📣 public speaker 🎓 educator 📺 presenter 📕 author 🎧 podcaster,
📣 Keynote Speaker and Commentator
I regularly talk at conferences (currently virtual ones!) on the future of digital and social media, as well as appearing in the media to share my expertise on tech-related issues. Recent appearances include ITV, CNN, BBC, Times Radio and TalkRadio.
🎓 Digital Marketing Consultant and Educator
Through bespoke in-house workshops and popular public courses, I upskill marketers from a wide range of industries. My lively, interactive sessions bring the latest insights and inspiration, along with applicable techniques and tools for effective modern marketing learnt over a 15-year career in advertising and media.
I’ve presented technology-focused content for a variety of channels and brands including BBC, EE, Samsung, Microsoft and Nokia. In the late noughties, as the UK Editor of MySpace I regularly hosted live video interviews, red carpets and junkets with the world's highest-profile music artists and celebrities from Justin Bieber and Jared Leto to Russell Brand and Ashton Kutcher.
I am also developing documentaries exploring how technology and culture are driving one another.

🎧 Podcast Host & Producer
I got into hospital radio as a kid, through my Dad who ran the hospital radio service and helped launch our first ever local radio station. I guess it was only natural I'd be into podcasting, and I've been producing them since the noughties. I currently host the Digital Marketing Institute's podcast - https://bit.ly/aotgp
