Mel Carson – Keynote Speaker & Digital Marketing Strategist

For well over a decade, Mel has been inspiring companies and individuals around the world to understand and make the most of the explosion in use of digital media and technology.

After 7 years at Microsoft as their Digital Evangelist, Mel left in the summer of 2012 to start Seattle-based consultancy – Delightful Communications – which helps businesses and executives successfully apply marketing strategies that focus on Social Media, Digital PR and Personal Branding.

He’s spoken at over a hundred conferences and events globally and has also lectured on MBA, MSc and online marketing courses, advising syllabus decision makers at Cranfield School of Management and Birkbeck College – part of London University – and the University of Washington.

Described as creative, compelling, emotional, engaging, visionary and actionable, Mel’s speeches will resonate right through the ranks of any company. His book, Pioneers of Digital, has been a critical success on both sides of the Atlantic, and has just been translated and published in China and Korea.

Previous his foray into digital evangelism, Mel was an actor and singer (he played the young Joe Cocker in a smash hit video with Catherine Deneuve in 1997), and it’s this background that has helped him establish a unique blend of insight and entertainment that carries audiences with him on a whirlwind journey from digital beginnings to where we are today and what the future holds.
