Goodbye Bauer Media - hello Brando Digital

I'm delighted to say I start a new job on Monday October 27. I'm leaving my role at Bauer Media (formerly Emap Consumer Media) to join the world's largest full service Social Media agency network: Brando Digital.

Brando Digital is a start-up with truly global reach, based in Camden, London.

I'm going to be Director of Social Media and work with a team of brilliant people to take companies, brands and organisations on their journey through and to the networked world.

I believe that listening to, learning from and participating in the networked world are the keys to understanding it, benefiting from it and becoming a humanised part of it - and so does Brando Digital.

You'll be able to learn more about Brando Digital on our website (Brando-Digital.com) when it goes live. It's a holding page at present - that's how new we are. Brando Digital is part of Brando World - of which more, here.

One of the big reason's I'm joining is the enlightened attitude of the organisation: They've been happy to recruit me on a four-days-a-week basis.
My fifth day (in a kind of self-funding google 20%-rule-model) can be used to take me outside the silo - doing my own consultancy work: from advice and analysis to workshops, speaking and conference organising. More about that will be published at http://fasterfutureconsulting.com when that url goes live in the next few days.

In the meantime, if you want to contact me about either working with the most faster-future-thinking, most globally networked* full-service social media agency there is (that's Brando Digital folks!) or about FasterFuture Consulting, drop me a line at: davidpcushman AT gmail DOT com

*Brando Digital has community and blogger outreach capabilities in EMEA, North America, Central and Latin America, Asia and Oceania; across English, Spanish (Catalan/Basque), Italian, French, German, Portuguese, Chinese (Cantonese), Russian and Arabic languages.

The rate of change is so rapid it's difficult for one person to keep up to speed. Let's pool our thoughts, share our reactions and, who knows, even reach some shared conclusions worth arriving at?
