I am the founder and CEO of Gloople, the UK 1st "Social Sharing" SaaS eCommerce platform, recently getting £150,000 Seed investment, valuing the business at £1M in less than 2 years.
With over 20 years' experience in selling products and services globally, I'm an international keynote speaker, trainer, author and consultant specialising in B2B Social Media and a Social Commerce evangelist. Helping SME's use Social Media and Digital Commerce to achieve a multi-channel experience to build their brand, drive traffic and better understand their customers.
My entrepreneurial skills started in the music industry at the early age of 19. After receiving a grant from the Prince's Youth Business Trust by the age of 22, I started my own music and clothing European Distribution Company. Focusing on business growth I became the director of a global stationary and accessory business working with Disney and Nickelodeon, growing a licensee from $5Million to $30Million selling to over 40 countries in a 5-year period achieving $1 Million sales in 1 month.
The last 6 years I have specialised in delivering keynote presentations, writing 3 ebooks (4th to be published this year) and helping over 1,000 SME's sell products and services, through the convergence of Social Media and Digital Commerce.
