Gemma Went

Digital Consultant

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available

Hello, I’m Gemma, an integrated marketing consultant with a focus on digital and social media. But don't be fooled by the geek facade, I'm not all about the tech. In some ways I'm positively analogue. You see I'm all about making real connections and building relationships that last. This is when social and digital really fly.

When it comes to marketing, I’ve been around the block a few times. I’ve led the marketing at a range of businesses, been the social media director at a couple of agencies and worked as a consultant across a range of industries. I’ve achieved great things. I’ve tried new ideas. I’ve failed and learnt from it. All of this I've done with a smile on my face. Well, most of the time.

My experience spans film, tv, music, fashion, design, architcture, events, fmcg, alcohol, education and beauty. I've worked with global brands and corporates, entertainment companies and events, agencies and design companies and some wonderfully diverse SMEs.

I'm also an accredited expert with the Design Business Association.
