After spending almost 15yrs helping people start and grow their own businesses (or projects) whilst working for Generator, Project North East, Shell LiveWIRE, Sage and Tech North (part of Tech City UK), Paul Lancaster (aka @lordlancaster) became an expert in using digital marketing and social media to share ideas, promote products and services and build communities of startup founders and creatives.
In April 2016, he launched ‘Plan Digital’ to share his content marketing, business development and partnerships expertise with startups and scale-ups across the North of England with a particular focus on the North East.
Known as a ‘SuperConnecter’ for all of the work he does to support and grow businesses in the North East, Paul won the ‘Collaborator of the Year‘ award at Dynamo North East’s Dynamites16 event in October 2016 and was recognised by Lissted as one of the ‘Top North East England Digital Influencers on Twitter‘.
Paul is also the Founder & Event Producer of the annual 5-day ‘Newcastle Startup Week‘ festival in May, the 1-day ‘Newcastle Scaleup Summit‘ in November and co-author of the ‘Small Business Marketing for Dummies‘ book published by Wiley.
