Biography

As an accomplished design leader, writer, presenter, tech pundit and SVP of Creative Innovation at Brandwidth, Dean is shaping the future for Toyota, Disney, BBC, Warner Music, Random House, Apple, Microsoft and Smithsonian Enterprises. Dean is a Fellow and the former VP of The Chartered Society of designers and runs the Gadgetarium on the Dadsaster podcast and is Inspector Gadget on Nikki Bedi’s BBC London 94.9 radio show. Last year, Dean was rudely dumped into the 'Small Business' category having made great strides in the 'Apps' category. True, he's not personally an app, but neither is he personally a small business. Let's try to get him in the App top 6 as his team has created amazing mobile titles such as... Guinness World Records: At Your Fingertips, Headspin: Storybook, Top 100 Albums, F:sh, Journey to The Exoplanets, Doctor Who Encyclopedia, America's Presidents and The Doors (+ some amazing iBooks!) Dean has plenty more to say on his blog at www.activrightbrain.com

How do you or your organization use social media? What makes your use unique?

Dean is assisted on his social media 'journey' by his multiple personalities - @ApptainAmerica @LaptopDean @TabletDean and @SmartphoneDean Here's the proof! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSxpPd4vHME He also runs another 10 Twitter accounts, but we can't tell you about those... This unique understanding of how social channels work can only be achieved by living it for every waking hour, then helping clients to connect with their audiences. It's not all about RTs, Favourites and Likes! Dean's wilder side also lives on Vine at https://vine.co/activrightbrain
