Damian Corbet's Summary

PR Services Manager at Halma plc.
This is a great role (which is why I’ve been here so long) which includes:

• Working closely with directors and senior management of our subsidiaries to research, implement and deliver PR/communications programmes
• Advising, educating (and often bullying) our subsidiaries to get them up to speed with social media
• Giving talks on social media and digital strategy to employees and directors of our subsidiaries
• Industrial photography (studio and location)
• In 2013 I organised, ran and presented at the first ever marketing conference for our European subsidiaries
• Until last year I managed the PR for our subsidiaries in India
• Until 2012 I managed the PR for all our companies in China; I then helped recruit and induct our new China PR Manager

I'm fascinated by the implications of our ever-more interconnected society for businesses and individuals. How are business leaders managing this change? Are they even aware of its significance? I explore these issues on my blog (www.damiancorbet.me), on Twitter (@DamianCorbet and @TheSocialCsuite) and other social networks.

In my spare time I'm a Global Rugby campaigner, calling for greater representation for the lower tier rugby nations. I write occasional blog posts and manage #RugbyUnited's @Rugby_Global Twitter account. I also tweet at @RugbyDamian.

I also manage a few LinkedIn groups:

• The Social C-Suite
• Digital Futures Group
• Global Issues
• The Intellectual Network
• Global Rugby

In the past I've done freelance writing for OOSKAnews (an influential US-based water industry newsletter) and for B2B companies.

For what it's worth, I'm also a member of Mensa.
