I started consulting across the Ad Tech space in 2011 when the industry started to get really interesting. "RTB" was the buzzword back then and people had only just started using the term "Programmatic" to describe the future of advertising. During my time in this area, I have witnessed first-hand this industry explode – from the talent
I started consulting across the Ad Tech space in 2011 when the industry started to get really interesting. "RTB" was the buzzword back then and people had only just started using the term "Programmatic" to describe the future of advertising. During my time in this area, I have witnessed first-hand this industry explode – from the talent involved, to the innovation and technology used. In the last 10 years alone, online advertising has developed to a point which would have taken traditional print hundreds of years to get to!
I see the purpose of my role, beyond finding my candidates their dream job and sourcing the hottest programmatic talent for my clients, as educating and supporting people within the industry. I do this by being a true specialist in my area, putting on thought leadership events, and helping bridge the knowledge gap in the constantly evolving digital landscape.
As we all know, there is a constant change in technology, consumer buying habits and advertising solutions. However the talent involved in responding to these increasing demands, has remained consistently highly qualified. Ultimately, they are the driving force behind such technologies and the glue that holds the industry together. If you’re an Ad Tech talent who is yet to connect with me, please feel free to contact me via Twitter, LinkedIn or email.
