I’m Ant, Co-founder of Sleeping Giant Media, fan of most things with an engine particularly bikes and F1, plus, books, running, and generally anything with a challenge to it. It’s also fair to say
I’m a bit of a geek, as I still enjoy Sci-fi and fantasy genres despite my wife desperately trying to introduce me to more mainstream pursuits like football! Of course technology is a big interest too, more so digital & online technologies. I love applying what we do to new business models and learning about their specific challenges, for me that’s what drives my passion in search.
Well, post A-levels/further education, there were some fairly rigorous CIM marketing courses, which all played their part in expanding my theoretical knowledge of the way things should work. However what really defined me and my future successes/failures was growing up in a family-run business. Learning in practice that you only get out what you put in. That combined with a pinch of military experience, a dash of traveling, and of course, a great work ethic instilled in me by my family. Those are the things that had more of a bearing on me… but with that said, getting the theory down laid a great foundation to build on.
Notable achievements? Being part of such a successful and passionate group of people at Sleeping Giant Media is something I take a lot of pride in, to think I’ve been part of that journey from 2 people in a dining room to where we are now definitely ranks top of my list!
That and Kayaking around the Kent coast of course 🙂
I am someone that likes to make things happen. or at least try! Enjoys the challenge and excitement of potential failure, particularly within the industry that we work, and I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years bring!
