Mike Parker-Bray

I'm a digital marketing specialist based in Devon, with more than a decade's experience at the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership, The Mersey Forest and Groundwork Oldham & Rochdale.

A passion for digital

Great digital communication is my pride and joy. I enjoy absorbing the latest best practice and upcoming trends from podcasts like Site Visibility, Boagworld and Target Internet (doing the washing up's not the same without them), and enewsletters by Smashing Magazine, Econsultancy and others. I love putting the latest thinking into practice (especially where it dovetails with my other passion, graphic design) and - despite operating with only a fraction of the budget - I strive to measure my work against the standards of the bluechip companies and international NGOs from whom thanks to the internet it is so easy to learn.

Other creative interests

Outside of work I'm a keen musician who has toured in both the UK and Germany. My wife and I host regular family theatre shows in our village as part of the Villages in Action network, and I help several local causes with pro bono graphic design.
