Strategic Geek at Lady Geek, previously working at King Alfred School, with a Psychology degree background.
As a Lady Geek I have been assistant producer of Series 3 & 4 of Lady Geek TV, which received over half a million views on YouTube; traveled all the way to LA to experience E3 (the world’s biggest gaming convention) courtesy of XBOX; frantically organised our first ever twitter party, which was trending in the top 3 on twitter in the UK; and I’m helping to run workshops in schools for Little Miss Geek to get the next generation of girls into tech.
At Lady Geek HQ I am also known as ‘Social Geek’ as I manage the day-to-day responsibility of our social channels, which have proven instrumental in the growth of the company. We are delighted to have a community that regularly engages with us on topical debates (from hackers motives to Lara Croft’s boob size) and gives us up-to-date insight on what women want from technology.
Since being ‘Social Geek’ I have become inspired by the way women have started to use social media. 57% of all social media is used by women. Through our work we have found that social media not only helps women to stay connected to their social communities, but it empowers them and gives women a voice to be heard.
