Alex Packham, Social Media Expert
When I started my first company I told my now COO and good friend about how I’d started my business, he said to me “So, you’re a University troublemaker turned entrepreneur…”
That phrase has stuck with me ever since.
I am Founder and CEO of ContentCal.io, a business that provides social media software and services to power hundreds of company’s social media marketing.
If you've stumbled across this page you're probably looking to find out a bit more about me and what I do, so here's a quick overview for those of you who prefer the short version:
I started my first business at University, a social media marketing and website build company. I also started a viral site called 'Cardiff Banter'.
I went on to run ODEON Cinemas social media for 2 years and then went on to work for NOW TV, which is part of Sky, running the social media team there. These two jobs formed the backbone of my entire career.
From here I founded a social media agency in 2014 called ASTP. We grew very quickly and I learnt a huge amount about growing a business, building a team and working with clients ranging from tiny SMEs to large corporates.
In 2016 I participated in a London Accelerator called 'The Accelerator Academy' with our tech platform that we built in the agency called ContentCal. This changed my life and my business in ways I could of never imagined. I met some incredible mentors and investors, worked with them on creating a business model that allows substantially greater scale that we could have ever achieved, and raised investment off the back of it to grow.
Won Young Entrepenur Of The Year in 2015 and ContentCal won Best Newcomer at the B2B marketing Expo in 2017.
Dabbling in crypto currency, blockchain and Ethereum technology where I get a spare moment.
