Henry Perkins' Summary

Proficient in brand management and advocacy, social & digital media lead generation, B2B PR, community management, customer care and project management.

I work closely with the WordPress community - volunteering, sponsoring and/or speaking at 10 conferences in the last 5 months. These conferences have given me invaluable insight into the WordPress community ranging from high profile developers and businesses, to everyday bloggers and web enthusiasts.

My goal in most positions is to build communities around niche interests that are able to conduct and sustain themselves through knowledge sharing, professionalism and mutual respect.
