Head of Digital at Hakim Group
Author of 'The Business Side of SEO'
I have been working within the digital marketing industry since 2001 and have seen many changes along the way.
I have a saying…
"If all you do is follow the crowd - you will only ever be as good as the crowd at very most. Being ‘as good as’ is just not good enough."
This mentality has allowed me to look beyond the norm to make a real difference in everything I do.
For the past 20 years, I have founded and grown three agencies, personally trained hundreds of professional marketers and have spoken on a few stages around the world, besides writing a best-selling book.
Fast forward to today and I am working at the only company I will ever work at until I retire.
As Head of Digital at Hakim Group, I am responsible for everything online, ensuring the group's rapidly expanding growth plans and goals are achieved.
Why I wanted to launch Talk About Digital
As a former professional speaker, myself, I found it incredibly frustrating to be censored at many of the events and conferences I spoke at. It may be the fact that I am unable to mention a certain digital marketing tool because their competitor sponsors the conference or there are certain things I can’t mention and certain points I get told I must mention.
Why TAD is different!
None of the speakers at our TAD events are censored at all. They have total control as to the content of their talk. The only stipulation is, no selling pitches and they must provide value to our audience. I feel that it is important that we discuss the Truth About Digital.
Talk About Digital is a digital marketing event for the digital people by the digital people hosted monthly. You let us know who you want to see and what you want to learn, and we will make it happen.
