His expertise lies in technology and social media, and he’s a fascinating futurist who uses his insight and experience to inspire and inform.

Chris launched Expedia founder Rich Barton’s new $90m start-up Glassdoor.com in Europe, and is frequently invited to write for The Guardian, Sky News and GQ about how organisations can make the most of opportunities presented by new technologies. He is currently the CEO of a VC backed fintech startup called Divido which pays the estate agency fees on behalf of sellers.

A born entrepreneur, Christer’s childhood games became a blueprint for his future career, as he attempted to become a retailer for LEGO at the age of 10. Still in his teens he started an advertising agency and a Rent-A-Santa business.

But it was in the year 2000, at the height of the IT boom, that Christer established himself as a business force to be reckoned with when he launched a local social networking site, and then sold it to an investor for an undisclosed amount, only 6 months later.

Formerly Head of Digital Product Development at The Times and The Sunday Times, Christer is currently launching Expedia founder Rich Barton’s new $40m start-up Glassdoor.com in Europe; author of Amazon Bestseller The Social Media MBA and Chairman of First Tuesday, the UK’s largest network for high growth technology SME’s and their investors.

The Evening Standard, Europe’s largest regional newspaper, named Christer as one of London’s Most Influential Individual Within New Media.

Apart from his contagious energy, entertaining presentations, and sunny personality, Christer embodies real digital innovation and delivery, and is an exceptional speaker on the subject.

He doesn’t only work on theories, rather real facts and tried and tested hands-on advice.

Responsible for the digital product strategy of one of the world’s best known media brands, as well as regularly discussing innovation with leaders of digital start-ups and global enterprises, he is in a unique position to appreciate corporate constraints, and ways around it, as well as spotting future digital trends today, new business models and new opportunities.

Christer regularly speaks to corporates, addressing their clients and senior management at conferences and kick-offs to inspire and excite the attendees with new ideas they can apply to their own business or department.

Outside business hours, Chris is committed to encouraging young people to explore their entrepreneurial potential and has been named Volunteer of the Year by Young Enterprise. He was recognised with an award by Prince's Trust for creating an online community for entrepreneurial university students.

His book, 'The Social Media MBA', is an Amazon bestseller.
