Jane Young is a technology entrepreneur, consultant and leading social business strategist. She takes organisations on a journey from fragmented or non-existent social media presence and fear of losing control, to long-term commitment and a clear strategy that looks beyond social media, to becoming a social business.
Jane helps organisations understand what social business means to them, and redefine what it means to do business in the 21st century, by transforming cultures, processes and mindsets in order to cope with the always-on, real-time demands of today's social customers.
Blending inspiring futurism with pragmatic change expertise to transform organisations that feel there must be a better way, but don't know how to get there, Jane is a highly acclaimed speaker on topics around change, social business, digital media, innovation, entrepreneurship, marketing, human behaviour and 21st century business models. She has worked with brands like 3M, Dixons, Currys, PC World, Vodafone and P&G. Jane delivers keynote speeches internationally to diverse audiences - from Pfizer's European multi-channel marketers in London and Grey LATAM digital leaders in Sao Paolo, to media studies students at EuroDisney and CEOs in Lisbon.
