As author of the Amazon bestseller The Social Media MBA seriespublished by the world’s largest academic book publisher Wiley in multiple languages http://amzn.to/x7oclL and Chairman of First Tuesday (http://firsttuesday.org.uk/), the UK’s largest network for high growth technology companies and their investors, Chris is frequently invited to write for Sky News, The Guardian and GQ about how organisations can make the most of opportunities presented by new technologies.
What makes Holloman unique as a speaker is that he not only writes and talks about technology trends but he regularly consults for major businesses and start-ups on how to take advantage and monetise these opportunities. This means he will not be providing theories by instead tried and tested hands on advice that will inspire and empower your delegates to take action.
Chris is currently launching Expedia founder Rich Barton’s new $90m start-up Glassdoor.com in Europe. Holloman was previously Head of Digital Product Development at The Times and The Sunday Times, responsible for award-winning apps and delivering new digital revenue streams.
Whether he is running a workshop, delivering a keynote, being a moderator or panellist, his message is always tailored to the client, the audience and the desired outcome of the event overall. In presentations Chris will showcase the best business use of new technologies by taking the audience on a journey via outposts such as Silicon Valley start-ups, tech buzz words, emerging customer and workforce trends, what’s next for social media and more. All his talks are peppered with case studies and real life examples to bring the topic to life and illustrate the ROI for businesses with clear call to actions thought-out the presentation; “This is how you can leverage this insight!”.
Holloman is regularly hired by event organisers to excite the attendees with new ideas they can apply to their own business or department. Recent clients include brands such as Microsoft, VISA and Ogilvy because he makes the rapid advances in technology comprehensible and relevant to a wider audience. Delegates leave the room feeling great about the future!
