As Director of Planning at Twitter UK, David spends his time helping brands, users and organisations to get the most out of the most exciting, weird and wonderful communications tool in the world.
Before joining Twitter David worked in media planning. He was head of planning at PHD for five years, working predominantly on Sainsbury’s, Mondelez and Warner Bros for whom he helped create the The Lego Movie Ad Break and prior to that spent eight years at Mindshare, working predominantly on Nike & ITV. He started his career at Zenith Media in an era his kids describe as "the 19 somethings".
He is co-chair of the Advertising Association's Media Business Course and an external governor of the University of Portsmouth and he spends an inordinate amount of time both on Twitter and on South Western Railways. He enjoys one of these much more than the other one.
