He has recently completed a secondment to Birmingham City Council as Economic Development Manager for Digital Birmingham where he championed the use of social media and digital tools to the city leaders and the business community.
For many years he has worked closely with Birmingham’s vibrant digital media sector acting as a link between the public sector and the business community. Since 2003 he has worked with the regional development agency for the West Midlands on their business clusters strategy and has previously managed a major business support project on their behalf.
