Paul Harrison is busy. He is always busy working on social media projects that span social recruiting through to social projects for local authorities like Tower Hamlets through his business, Carve Consulting.In addition to consulting, Paul is heavily involved in exercising (not just talking about) corporate social responsibility through his involvement with the social promotion of Fairtrade and other initiatives.
Carve handle all things social from strategy, implementation, managing and monitoring. What I like about Paul is that despite his success and undisputed knowledge, he does not take himself too seriously When Paul speaks, there’s plenty of humour mixed in with great information sharing.
The about section on the Carve consulting website talks of Paul as follows:
The recent launch of the iPad has challenged Paul’s historic antipathy to mac users (on account of their “insufferable smugness” ), and his purchase of said item on launch day turned him from a Steve Jobs cult-accuser to iBore overnight. Famously never without a newspaper tucked under one arm, Paul is a current affairs junkie who prays that the iPad and similar new devices will save his beloved Guardian from oblivion. [Full disclosure: the Guardian did not sponsor this insertion; however Paul is allegedly open to offers].
Worried that his 15 minutes of fame has already been used up in an inauspicious YouTube clip showing him explaining Bullshit Bingo to non-plussed American conference delegates, Paul is a highly visible face of Carve through regular speaking engagements around the social web and corporate social networking. Paul is ultimately the architect of Carve’s vision and strategy.
I’m delighted that Paul has agreed to be a track leader for the third time at #truLondon. I enjoy his company as well as learn from him. He is a #tru ambassador.
