Hello there. I’m Simon. Thanks for stopping by.
I currently work as a senior lecturer at London College of Communication, University of Arts London. I help teach under-graduates and post-graduate students about public relations (PR), communications – particularly how social media is re-shaping these fields. I also teach students about critical and cultural theory and how we can understand PR from such perspectives.
Before this I used to work as consultancy director at We Are Social where I researched, analysed and applied emerging digital trends to help clients innovate, restructure and optimise their communications and marketing functions and activity. More detail about the great clients and projects I worked for and the exciting approaches we deployed (within reason obviously!) are available on request.
I’m also a former Non-Executive Director with the Open Rights Group, a UK based digital rights NGO campaigning to protect civil liberties threatened by the poor implementation and regulation of digital technology.
