Managing Director, Patch Media

Whilst working for a wedding venue, even the spilling of gravy down a small child’s neck didn’t quell Jackson’s passion for the meetings industry and the power of face to face. The majority of his experience has come from working in the media that surrounds the industry – He launched the commercial element of Conference News, headed up the UK venues and destinations area of Confex  from 05-07 and co-launched Meetings Review, the web TV channel.

He’s CEO of Octoplus, a venue listing updating tool and Managing Director of Patch Media an agency that focuses on saving venues, destinations and supplier’s time and money by helping with elements of their marketing. This includes anything from media buying and planning to SEO/PPC as well as social media strategy to web/graphic design and copywriting.
