Some exciting news


After nearly six interesting and challenging years at Guardian News and Media, most recently as Head of Digital Engagement, I’m striking out on my own, moving on to do independent consulting & project work in the areas of digital engagement, social strategies, product innovation, community practice and creative collaboration.

As you may know, I’ve been working in this broad area for over fifteen years now as practitioner, strategist and academic, with a range of big-name brands, non-profits and startups, but my curiosity and passion for it has endured and even intensified as technologies, media and societies continue to evolve.

So from the start of 2013, I’ll be raring to get my teeth into fresh challenges. In the meantime, I’m starting conversations with interested parties, partners, collaborators and companies throughout the autumn and winter.

If you or your employer think that sounds interesting, or you think you have a project which needs a Meg, get in touch! I’m contactable via this website, LinkedIn or Twitter: @megpickard.

Exciting times!
