Welcome to The Red Rocket, a place for me to record my thoughts and share what I’m learning about the worlds of technology, PR, social media, and whatever else that takes my fancy.
My name is Phil Szomszor and I work in London as Digital Engagement Director at Harvard, a communications agency for tech companies. I also work across the Chime Group of specialist agencies as a digital comms consultant.
Over the years I’ve worked for B2B tech companies such as Cisco, CenturyLink, Fujitsu, Masternaut, Ricoh and Hitachi; consumers brands such as TalkTalk, Propel, Lloydspharmacy and Kwik-Fit; and a number of fast-track start-ups, including AudioFuel, Jadu and Esendex.
My personal mantra is “to work with nice people that do interesting things”. It’s not the brand name that matters most to me, or trying to win awards (although that is a pleasant side-benefit), but finding out the news hook or interesting angle in any company, and help people find their way of telling that story.
If you’re looking for either a PR or digital marketing agency, or someone to just bounce some ideas off, then feel free to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
