Mike Phillipson

Mike designs and maintains the SmarterBusinessProcesses.com web site and has created several of the video's on our YouTube Channel, but his main interest is in offering advise - even (perhaps especially) if its not been asked for. Ask Mike a question and chances are he’ll answer with a helpful analogy, a cultural touchstone or an experience from his days in technology sales and marketing, working with prestigious clients like Jessops, ITV and the NHS. When he’s not producing video marketing or managing social media and websites, you’ll either find Mike tinkering with technology, or walking in the Yorkshire Dales.
