Welcome Twitter Friends! Meet David Petherick - The Digital Biographer
Hello, I am a Digital Influence Architect, The Digital Biographer (as defined by the BBC), a Word Chef, and Social Media Commentator. Being a native Scot and a McLean, I wear the kilt. For other reasons, I speak good Russian, and fair Spanish.
I was born in Edinburgh in 1964, where I still live, with my Russian wife Roza, and daughter, Angelica, and I have founded a number of companies since 1993, and am currently a director at Russian Communications and NewsBase. I am Minister for Sound at Make words Make sense, and Director of First Impressions at Digital Biographer.
I enjoy photography, visual art, whisky, entertaining friends, cooking, travel, wine and literature, and really enjoy sharing and learning online. I am a Co-Author of the bookS 'Age of Conversation 2' and 'Age of Conversation 3'.
This Blog's Themes:
How to be visible, credible, legible & profitable online using social media...
I write about using social media tools effectively from an individual and corporate viewpoint, and about building up a picture of how social media can be used as part of a sales, marketing and customer care strategy.
What people pay me to do...
I am paid to make online profiles work as hard as their subjects (aka profile makeovers), and also write for The Next Web Blog, based in Amsterdam. See the Services section for more specific information if you are interested in how I might help you.
I also educate organisations as to how social media can help them communicate honestly and efficiently with customers and stakeholders. An area of growing focus is using social media to empower and engage your employees:- Both an internal and internal growth in confidence, transparency and visibility create a genuine win-win scenario.
I am available as a speaker and as an adviser, and as a facilitator and host for conferences. I am based in Edinburgh, but travel often to Barcelona, Moscow, London and Amsterdam.
