James Gardner

I am a digital technology strategist. Now working in the pharmaceutical industry, I previously worked at Volume, one of the largest independent B2B digital marketing agencies in the UK. Throughout my career I have dealt with everything from social media to cloud computing, Storage Area Networks to Virtualization, giving me a broad view on the technology issues facing businesses today. In my spare time I can be found making cars out of Lego - with my two kids obviously - or dreaming of a walk-on part in a Romero zombie movie.
