Event details

Industrial Activity and Collaboration in the Digital Economy with Howard Scott, Roksana Moore and Kevin Forshaw

Howard Scott

Howard Scott is a senior level digital marketer who has worked in the industry since 1996. Now running his own consultancy and working with several start-ups he was, until recently, sitting on the board of Sequence as digital marketing director.

Like many with a 15+ year career in digital he has a hybrid background covering technology, creative thinking, strategy and delivery. In that time he has worked with the likes of Eversheds, Rachel's Organic, McDonald's, Vodafone, GSK, Canon, Shell and many others.

In his spare time Howard is an Executive member of the British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) and has helped bring the University of Southampton closer to this national organisation to look at opportunities around closer working in the future and a vision to be the "centre of excellence" for digital R&D.

Howard is currently ranked as the 48th most influential person in the UK by the New Media Age Top 100, although he suspects this is due mainly to having more social media accounts than most people and little to do with interesting content. His twitter name is @Howard_scott

Roksana Moore joined the Southampton School of Law in October 2010 as a full time lecturer. In addition to her teaching and research commitments, Roksana is also working to reintroduce the LLB Information Technology course in 2011. Roksana has worked on various areas of relevance to the Digital Economy, including the challenges ‘new' technology is posing to ‘old' or established legal concepts, and the cultural appropriation of music and the Creative Commons.

Kevin Forshaw is currently the Collaboration Manager for the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at Southampton University, and helps academics maximise the downstream socio-economic impact of their research. This activity includes helping with the strategic management of IP created, and also creating links with industry for collaborative research or commercial exploitation.
