About Me


In a rapidly evolving world, talent acquisition faces unprecedented challenges. Over the past two decades, I’ve been fortunate to work with employers globally, helping them understand and adapt to the trends and technologies shaping the recruiting, HR, and business landscape.

With a background in leading digital divisions at top recruitment marketing agencies, writing for national newspapers and trade publications, and collaborating with global FTSE and Fortune 100 companies as an independent consultant, I’ve gained valuable insights and experience in every aspect of talent acquisition, recruitment marketing and employer branding.

I shared my knowledge in keynote speeches at events in 17 countries and via my popular podcast, Recruiting Future—the world’s top talent acquisition podcast. I’ve also co-authored two internationally published books Exceptional Talent (Kogan Page 2017) and Digital Talent (Kogan Page 2022). I’m honoured to have been recognized as a top influencer by several organizations, including SAGE and Human Resource Executive.

As someone who values the growth of the next generation of talent acquisition leaders, I aim to provide thought-provoking insights that inspire and empower action. As a content creator, I guide talent acquisition and HR professionals through emerging trends and strategies, helping them excel in their careers.

I’m lucky enough to be based in Scotland, living just outside the fantastic city of Edinburgh with my wife and our highly energetic seven-year-old son. My warm, approachable, and inspiring style, and expertise, make me the supportive partner you need to help you fully understand the future of talent acquisition and recruiting.
