Biography: Alex Hunter

Alex Hunter


Speakers Corner says

“He laces humour in to his talks but still manages to focus on the important topics.”

If anyone knows about launching a start-up and the power of branding, it’s Alex Hunter. A company incubator, angel investor, and keynote speaker, Alex is bestowed with a quirky charm, and a unique insight into the effect a powerful marketing campaign can have on a product.

Alex has previously served as an adviser to the Prince of Wales' Rainforest Trust specifically around the use of social media and engagement to propagate the Trusts' message. Alex's work has been featured in the best-selling book "The Whuffie Factor" by Tara Hunt. He has been a mentor at the annual SeedCamp venture capital and angel funding event in London and South Africa, helping young companies refine their marketing and branding before pitching to some of the most influential VCs in the tech community.

Previously, Alex served as the global Head of Online Marketing for the Virgin Group, curating the Virgin brand's global digital strategy. Before joining the Virgin Group, Alex was based in California at Virgin America, where he used the web to build a grassroots marketing campaign to garner public support for Virgin America's certification process on a tight schedule and even tighter budget. The campaign was covered by Time magazine, CNN, and CNBC, amongst others. He also oversaw the front-end development of Virgin America's website which has since won several accolades including ad:tech and Webby Award honours.

Alex currently divides his time between the UK and Northern California.
