In 2014, with 13 years of digital and social media experience under his belt, Simon decided to found slp consulting to help organisations navigate the rate of change and growing impact of social media on customers, prospects and employees.
At Capgemini Consulting he spent most of his time helping to improve online customer experiences, and dabbling in something new called Web 2.0.
This led Simon to a boutique social media agency, RMM, where he was able to immerse himself in all things social media, working with a number of large early-adopter brands.
With a good dose of strategic and best practice knowledge, Simon then headed “client side” to really put this to the test. As Head of Social Media at Sainsbury’s Supermarkets he was able to work across many different sectors, collaborate directly with the major social networks, and push social media onto the agenda of senior stakeholders.
Reflecting on this combination of real world experience and best practice knowledge, Simon decided it was high time to set up his own gig – slp consulting was born.
