Richard Barley headshotHi, I’m Richard Barley

I’ve been working in and around social media since July 2009, when I first joined the TweetDeck team. Since then, I’ve been immersed in social across a range of roles, as a publisher, creative, developer and more.

Before moving into a career in social, I also had a very successful 10-year career as a consultant for various software companies. Building on my technical background, I developed a love of customer-facing roles, and became a leading consultant working on major software implementations for global brands. Developing and delivering entertaining and engaging training, workshops and presentations became my forté

This combination of experience allows me to be much more than just a social media expert and has given me what I feel is  a unique resumé.

If you’d like to talk about how I can help you, I’d love to hear from you so please do get in touch.
