Hi my name is Sean and I have been a Giant since 2009. I joined the company relatively early on and it has been incredibly exciting to have witnessed the growth and development of the company over the last 5-6 years. My current role is pretty awesome as it allows me to get involved in most areas of helping to develop Sleeping Giant Media’s digital service offering.
Quite a few moons ago I studied for an MA in History at St.Andrews University. I have spent over 10 years developing my marketing & digital knowledge and this has definitely been turbo charged over the last 5-6 years while working as part of the Sleeping Giant team.
I’m a proud Dad to my little girl with a baby boy on the way soon. I am lucky to have an amazing wife who puts up with me obsessively geeking out on my interests & hobbies. Not sure you could call all of the below achievements but I’ve been incredibly fortunate to some amazing experiences to date. A few of the highlights below:
- Working as part of the Sleeping Giant team!
- Completing the 100km London to Brighton run as part of the Sleeping Giant Combat Stress team.
- Visiting mountain gorillas on the border of Uganda, Rwanda & Congo last year was very special.
- Spending a month walking and climbing solo in the Himalayas.
- Visiting the ancient ruins of Persepolis in Iran. Then getting arrested on suspicion of nefarious anti-state activities and managing to talk my way out of it…eventually!
- Having played rugby as a fairly competitive (cheaty) openside flanker. Might be time for a come back! I feel very fortunate to work in the industry I do as it is constantly evolving and the opportunities to keep learning are fantastic.
- As part of the Sleeping Giant Media team we are constantly looking for new ways to develop our knowledge base & service offerings. There is also a real commitment to developing people which is something I really value. This makes for a pretty gosh darned good place to work!
