Alex helps ambitious brands and driven entrepreneurs tell their stories via the power of podcasting.
He founded his podcast agency, Podpreneur, after the success of his own podcast changed his life.
From initially launching his own show and receiving just two downloads – clearly his wife & his mother – to getting a #1 rated business show all over the globe, from the UK to Uganda, his podcast – Screwitjustdoit – is now downloaded in 140+ countries.
Alex spent a number of years in the entrepreneurship space, working with Sir Richard Branson’s not-for-profit Virgin StartUp, helping entrepreneurs get funding & mentoring.
He still has a vested interest in this space as an advisor for global startup-generator and VC, Antler.co, and also chairs the Accelerate Event Series for British American Business. Alex passionately believes that everybody deserves to be heard & that podcasting provides a great platform to do just that.
He’s on a mission to help ambitious brands & driven entrepreneurs who want to educate their existing customers about their products and services, and attract more like-minded listeners to become paying customers.
Alex and his team have helped create and launch numerous podcasts into Apple’s iTunes Top 20 chart from corporate brands through to regional startups.
He has a long-standing history with audio, having started his career at BBC Radio in the 1990’s before deciding to travel the world working for Virgin Atlantic Airlines.
He feels like he’s now come full-circle as podcasting has recently exploded in popularity.
