Jane Young is a technology entrepreneur and an exciting speaker on the topic of social media. She has a fresh, quirky and highly engaging approach.
Avoiding university as the obvious route to a career, she represents a new breed of entrepreneur who has an ease with technology and the opportunities it presents us, particularly in the space of social business. Jane is the founder of Scramblr, a platform that enables creative teams to set up their own online studios. Prior to this she founded London-based boutique digital agency Kanbee, delivering online and film projects. She is also a regular blogger at resonanceblog.com.
As a speaker, Jane finds a way of weaving really complex problems into a story that inspires, even if she’s talking about a technology subject to non-technical people. Jane helps her audiences to see past the jargon, hype and worms’ eye view of today’s social media tools. She looks towards a bigger picture for using social media to drive growth in the 21st Century; exploring how we can solve age old business problems using new knowledge and technological capabilities. Jane speaks about the concept of “social business” and differentiates between red herrings (Do I need a presence on Facebook?) to exploring answers about why social media really matters in business today.
Jane has worked with brands such as Dixons, Curry’s, PC World, Vodafone, Wildfire Word of Mouth, Grey and Procter & Gamble.View more

Huge ideas balanced beautifully on simple concepts, articulately presented, a Jane Young speaking event is exactly that.”

“I saw Jane Young speak at Marketing Week’s Future of TV Advertising conference. For me it was the stand-out presentation of the day; thought provoking, insightful and very brave. A very different take than most of the industry insiders that also presented.”
