The speed at which the digital environment changes, makes it very hard for mum and dad specifically to keep up. Add into the mix that in some cases they just aren’t that interested in social media or online gaming and it’s easy to see why the gap we seek to reduce is actually getting bigger. Having owned and operated his own digital agency and helping businesses use the internet more effectively Barry has identified a gap in the market as more and more of the clients started asking questions from their role as mum and dad, rather than General Manager, or Marketing Director and he took his deep technical understanding of the digital space and turned that into digestible, relatable content for the audience.
