I have been working in the media and advertising business since 1993. 25 years spread across traditional and digital media sales working in Sub-Sahara Africa and United Kingdom – although most of time spent on the African continent. My experience lies in media advertising sales and marketing.
I have been working with LinkedIn since 2012 but in 2016 I was offered an opportunity to go alone. Turn Left Media was started with my business partner Marius G to focus on our attention primarily on LinkedIn Marketing Solutions for Sub-Sahara Africa.
From previously having represented a multitude of 1st and 3rd party channels in a large corporate, facing the massive challenges associated and realising that you can’t sell the smorgasbord of media, we found our niche and true north with a dedicated team committed and focused to the LinkedIn mission. Although we are a reseller, we feel we have the LI DNA in our blood and the culture in our bones – we’re proud to be LMS reps on the ground in Africa!
I have two superb kids, an amazing wife and an anxiety rescue dog called Coffee. Not on the LI profile: I am an amateur drummer and a bit of reckless mountain biker.
