Day-to-day I am the MD here which means I have to ensure our business is developing and growing in order to provide the very best services and people to our visionary clients: a varied and rewarding role.

Love action, curry, mountain biking, camping, rugby France and most of all my family.
Unfairness, idiocy, bad customer service and apathy at the state of the world.

Will McInnes is a passionate voice on how the internet is radically changing our personal behaviour, our organisations and our society. Will has particular expertise in the social web, and is part of the movement to harness and understand the cultural impact of online social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

Will is a non-executive director of Wired Sussex, which supports the development of the digital business community in Brighton. He is married with two energetic young boys, is a mountain biking geek, loves camping, and eating far too much curry.
"Happiness, openness and participation are seen as subversive and even ridiculous in traditional business boardrooms."
Copenhagen, 2011. "How do we focus our organizations around on a higher purpose? Will the CEO be replaced by the Chief Meaning Officer?"
