For over 10 years, I’ve been helping companies: - take advantage of analyst influence and insight so they can generate more business, gain a competitive edge and get better known, and - understand the “big picture” dynamics of what’s happening in the technology and telecoms market My clients have included start-ups, SMEs and large companies like Accenture, Adobe, Blackberry, Capita, CSC, Fujitsu, Hitachi, HP, Huawei, Logica, Nortel, NVIDIA, Ricoh, Telstra, Virgin Media and Vodafone. I work in London for Harvard, the award-winning integrated communications agency. We also trade as Sunesis AR. I lead our industry analyst relations Centre of Excellence as well as providing broader industry insight, strategic messaging and influencer relations services to our clients. I’ve been closely involved with the IIAR (Institute of Industry Analyst Relations) since helping to found it in 2005.
