Introduction

People are always asking me for a long list of pretty much everything I've ever written, edited or project managed... Alright, they never do, but I've made one anyway and here it is.

If for some reason you don't want to see everything I've ever done, but would rather just see one aspect of my working life, you can use the tags at the bottom of each entry, the top navigation bar or the choices on the right-hand side to filter what you see. Enjoy!



Feature for the Connected Digital Economy Catapult website (July 2014) on how to get your digital project noticed - a guide for startups and SMEs:
 
How to get the right people interested in your digital creation
So you have a great idea for a digital project, but how do you go about making sure your creation is noticed and talked about by the right people?



Written for the Connected Digital Economy Catapult - A national centre to rapidly advance the UK's best digital ideas' - made into an interactive PDF.
