As Mike Butcher announced today on TechCrunch UK – I’ve got another new consultancy gig! I’m very proud to be working with TechCrunch and partners to bring some really exciting technically focussed events to the UK and also across Europe.
Plenty of people have been wondering when we’d start running some TechCrunch events on this side of the pond. But attempting to run a full-time news blog and run events at the same time is a recipe for chaos. So I’m delighted to say that TechCrunch UK & Ireland is going to be working with Thayer Driver as our Events & Sponsorship Consultant. One of the first things we’ll be working on together is a decent-sized TechCrunch event for the Summer, while looking at other opportunities in the meantime to bring our community of readers together. Thayer will be exploring commercial opportunities for TechCrunch events both in the UK, Ireland and, potentially, other European centres. She can be reached on thayer.driver[AT]gmail.com (LinkedIn page) and here is a little more information about her. Oh, and, unlike most events people I know, she can also build objects in Second Life.
So there you go! What he said 😉
Please do drop me a line if you’re interested to hear more about what we’re going to be doing, and if you have any ideas or would like to be involved.
