Passions & Purpose

When I started my first company I told my now COO and good friend about how I’d started my business, he said to me “So, you’re a University troublemaker turned entrepreneur…”

Starting my business at 23, my passion is to keep growing ContentCal marketings services as well as our product tool, ‘ContentCal,’ a calendar-based web and mobile application. I have a keen interest in challenging the status quo in society especially around the world of work and a strong opinion on what ‘day to day’ life can look like if you put your mind to it.

Long Biography

When I started my first company I told my now COO and good friend about how I’d started my business, he said to me “So, you’re a University troublemaker turned entrepreneur…”

 

That phrase has stuck with me ever since. I am Founder and CEO of ContentCal.io, a business that provides social media software and services to power hundreds of company’s social media marketing. I started my first business at University, a social media marketing and website build company. I also started a viral site called ‘Cardiff Banter’. I went on to run ODEON Cinemas social media for 2 years and then went on to work for NOW TV, which is part of Sky, running the social media team there. These two jobs formed the backbone of my entire career. From here I founded a social media agency in 2014 called ASTP at the age of 23. We grew very quickly and I learnt a huge amount about growing a business, building a team and working with clients ranging from tiny SMEs to large corporates.

In 2016 I participated in a London Accelerator called ‘The Accelerator Academy’ with our tech platform that we built in the agency called ContentCal. This changed my life and my business in ways I could of never imagined. I met some incredible mentors and investors, worked with them on creating a business model that allows substantially greater scale that we could have ever achieved, and raised investment off the back of it to grow. ContentCal is now a company that offers both a product and marketing services with 30 employees.

My biggest achievements in my career so far would be I Won Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 and ContentCal won Best Newcomer at the B2B marketing Expo in 2017.

 

I have a keen interest in challenging the status quo in society especially around the world of work and a strong opinion on what ‘day to day’ life can look like if you put your mind to it.

Story Details

I founded my first business, ASTP, in 2014. Our mission was to interrupt ‘business as usual’ for our clients and harness the power of social and digital marketing to unlock growth. We launched our first product ContentCal.io in 2016 to scale our successful approach to social media marketing, making companies substantially more efficient, making their marketing more effective and giving businesses more control over their social media presence. We’ve seen huge levels of growth with our clients and ourselves, and have no plans to stop yet.

I started my first ‘business’ at school selling sim cards I got for free (and whatever else I could get my hands on) for a profit. At University I was making £20,000+ a year from home. I went on to launch 2 businesses by the age of 23 after a successful career at two large brands in the UK. My mission is that the stories I share will inspire people who want to start their own business to take action and do it.
