Guy Clapperton began work as a technology journalist in 1989 and hasn’t stopped. He saw the early onset of the Internet, took part in early versions of social media in the 1990s, became one of the first journalists to be paid for writing online in 1995 and wrote one of the first books on social media for business in 2009.
More recently he was launch editor of New Statesman Tech, the website attached to the magazine, and edits Intelligent Sourcing (formerly Professional Outsourcing Magazine) which covers a lot on Blockchain, artificial intelligence and the future of work. He was co-author of “The Smarter Working Manifesto”, a book in 2014, when he also co-wrote “The Joy of Work?” He is currently editing a book on work and technology in the immediate future.
Guy is an international speaker and fellow of the Professional Speaking Association, UK and Ireland. He has a core presentation on near future technology and business but his preferred assignments are those in which he gets under the skin of an industry, researches and comprehends his client’s market and offers a tailored presentation with practical pointers on what can help move things forward.
Guy is also an experienced conference MC who exhibits an apparently light, humorous touch but clients can’t help but note that everything always works to time and the AV crew and everyone else feel well looked after.
