At this market briefing, Thomas Skinner will entertain us with stories about his career, what motivates him, his use of social media, and his participation in the hit BBC TV show “The Apprentice”.

Description

Social media as we know it rapidly spread internationally from around 1997, with use in business, news/media and celebrity culture becoming the latest wave of technology after telephones, fax machines and computers. Before long, social media had evolved to produce platforms such as Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and, more recently, TikTok.

Without a doubt, social media has irreversibly transformed how individuals communicate and network globally. But, is it a help or hindrance and what is it like to conduct modern day business without it?

At this market briefing event, we welcome Thomas Skinner who will chat about his experiences on “The Apprentice”, the challenges of completing tasks with teammates, but no internet access and, being fired by Lord Sugar….

Working since the age of 16 and now running his own company, Tom will discuss how he started, what motivates him, staying focused and his use of social media from both a business and personal angle. We will ask Tom how social networking can advance your career and what pitfalls to avoid.

Now a celebrity with 275,200 followers on TikTok, 275,000 on Instagram and 249,000 on Twitter, Tom has become known for the motivational videos on social media, particularly for those showing his extensive and unusual breakfasts he usually eats at Dino’s Cafe in Leyton, East London – signing off with his catchphrase “Bosh”.

  • Thomas Skinner, BBC “The Apprentice” Candidate (2019), Entrepreneur and Motivational Social Media Influencer
  • Tom Hughes, Senior Market Services Executive, IUA and Secretary to the IUA Developing Technology Monitoring Group (DTMG)
