Hi, My name is Edd Withers, and I am Director of Edd Withers Consultancy.
I live in Canterbury, in Kent, in a lovely Victorian house with two lovely housemates.
The Canterbury Times summed me up nicely here – Canterbury Times Profile
Here is a bit about me, and four of my main interests.
Media. Specifically social media. I love the internet. To be further precise, I love social networking. I’m a fully fledged Facebook addict, twitterholic and forum fan. I love my iPhone and my iPad. I love foursquare and liking things. I love the social graph. I consult for businesses on how best to market themselves online and on how to create an online presence in line with your brand identity. I get businesses noticed online.
Entrepreneurship. I love doing business. Someone offered me a shop on Canterbury high street when I was 22, UK, and I bought it. It was my 5th serious business since I was 15. It was a coffee and baguette bar, called Baguette-Ella.
Marketing is awesome. It’s hard and I really enjoy the challenge. I help people market their product, brand or personality. I work with some awesome friends who help me, and then invoice me. My friends and I come up with some awesome ideas.
Magic is a passion of mine. I founded the UK’s fastest growing and most talked about online magic community, The Magic Woods. I have arranged exclusive question and answer sessions, with guests such as Teller, Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger, and Paul Daniels. I have consulted and worked for magic organisations ranging from Europe’s largest magic shop to top TV magicians.
