Dr Geraint Evans

Award-winning marketing practitioner, academic, writer & speaker

What I do

I’m a tech loving Welsh dad and award winning marketing practitioner. My various hats include: marketing strategy consultant, board advisor, author, keynote speaker and published academic researcher.

I’ve held a variety of global marketing leadership roles, delivering work for major brands such as ODEON Cinemas Group, Virgin Media, Tesco, Boots and Whitbread. In addition to consulting with a wide variety of clients from SMEs to Global blue-chip companies on marketing, digital and strategic growth, I also coach individuals one-to-one.

I am a not-for-profit board advisor, a published academic and a regular writer and presenter, writing for publications such as VentureBeat, Econsultancy and Thrive Global.

My areas of interest and expertise

My main areas of interest are emerging technology, innovation and trends in customer experience, digital transformation and social media.

I gained my PhD in Marketing & Entrepreneurship from the University of Wales and am a Fellow of The Chartered Institute of Marketing and a Visiting Research Fellow at St Mary’s University, London.

International Speaking

I have spoken at a wide variety of international events (most recently at Marketing Week Live and Social Media Week London). As a content creator I regularly produce original video content, and I host the Four Heads podcast.

I typically speak about emerging trends in customer behaviour, AI, digital, brand marketing and product innovation. I am open to working to a brief for any session you may not have that’s in my area of interest and expertise.

Marketing mentor and career coach

As a coach and mentor I’ve found that my clients often ask me to recommend an online community – somewhere that offers practical advice for experienced marketers looking to take both their career and personal life to the next level.

I couldn’t find anything quite like what my clients were looking for, so in 2018 I quietly launched an early iteration of the Ceiling: Smashed membership programme. The programme has helped a number of individuals make significant progress in their careers. I’ve taken onboard their feedback, their learning and my personal reflection and now the ‘2.0’ version is ready for a new intake in September 2019!
