Neil Fairbrother Marketing
I bring a range of skills in two main disciplines, Product Management and Marketing Communications, to companies in the Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) markets.
As a Product Manager I maximise the margins and commercial success of technical innovations and developments. In the role of Marketing Communications Manager, I communicate the benefits of these technical features in the most cost effective and measurable ways to the most relevant audience possible.
Recognised by the Sunday Observer as one of the UK's top 10 most innovative marketers, I am entrepreneurial in my approach, a creative thinker, an inspirational leader and a motivational team player.
I am technically aware, adept at product and service management, with broad and deep experience in software, hardware and service creation and delivery. I have excellent marketing communications skills in all media: the written word, presentations, audio podcasts and video.
I Make Your Marketing Work.

- The SAS Institute
- Eton Digital
- Institute of Telecoms Professionals (ITP)
- S130 Ltd
- Ocean Youth Trust

Here's my profile:
My life in six words:
Having fun, for the most part
(inspired by Hemmingway's six word story).
I like frosty mornings, dinner parties (good food, good conversation, good company), creative people (always inspirational), positive people, film editing, fascinated by animation.
I like Apple Mac, unexpectedly meeting old friends, design, being on my own, being in company, being with my girlfriend, being with my boys, meeting new people, music, Ronnie Scott's, innovation, art, freedom, shopping, earth tones, autumn shades, vanilla, nougat, strong fresh coffee, French patisserie, baking bread (not bread machine).
I'm an ENFP (The Inspirer) /ENFJ (The Giver) if you know what that means. I love life, see it as a special gift, and strive to make the most of it, and to help those around me to do the same.
I don't like, in no particular order: tomatoes, gooseberries, rhubarb, night clubs, opera, boybands, rap music, rudeness, alcohol, smoking, traffic jams, jobsworths, airline food and airlines, hypocrisy, deceit, bureaucracy.
