103 CLIENTS, 56 SPEAKING EVENTS, over 7000 TWEETS, I AM HERE TO HELP
My name is Warren Knight. I'm a Social Media and Digital Commerce expert based in London. Over the last 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with some amazing brands and clients.
I left college at the age of 19 and moved to London to pursue a music career. After three years of running music events in nightclubs and working as a professional Hip-Hop dancer, I embarked on an entrepreneurial journey. At just 22 I received a grant from the Prince's Youth Business Trust to invest in my first business; a pan- European Music and Clothing Distribution Company.
At the age of 27, I began working for a global stationery and fashion accessory business where I became Sales Director within three years. I worked closely with Disney and Nickelodeon overseeing the manufacturing of their products in China and the distribution of their goods in over 40 countries to retailers including Tesco, Wal-Mart and Staples.
As a mentor to SMEs I have helped many companies obtain a clear sales and marketing plan, helping them achieve up to a 300% increase in turnover in just six months. During the last 5 years I have also published an eBook trilogy, each with their own unique outlook on growing a business through sales, international business and social commerce.
I now stand as the CEO and Co-Founder of the UK's only fully integrated social sharing Ecommerce platform; Gloople. My passion for Social Media and Digital Commerce has helped me grow from a club event planner to a business owner, writer, mentor, speaker and most of all, a positive and informative individual, with the ability to help companies use the World Wide Web to grow their business.
