Who is Jas Dhaliwal?
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!
I’m currently working as Director of Communities and Online Engagement for a software company, where I connect with communities on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and on global forums. I also contribute to various posts on Social Media too too.
Formerly, I was the Social Media Specialist at Microsoft UK, working within the fabulous Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award Program. Prior to that, I was the IT European Services Delivery Manager for Firmenich, a Swiss based Flavours and Fragrance house.
I began my career working as a Systems Engineer, specialising in various desktop and server technologies. I then moved into the world of Service Delivery, helping corporate business to transform their IT from a support partner, to a true business partner. I have worked all over Europe and love working with culturally diverse teams.
Having completed an MBA in 2007, I now live and breathe social media. I help businesses to engage with online audiences by leveraging social media tools. I work with key stakeholders to develop and implement online strategies which are in tune with the needs of the business.
Whether reporting back on marketing analytics, key industry trends or delivering workshops and seminars on social media. My key strengths are helping people reach out to key influencers and to engage with the ‘Voice of the Customer’.
This blog is a personal passion and looks at how small businesses are using Web 2.0 technologies as marketing tools. Behind my suit, you’ll find a geek marketer who is passionate about people and obsessed with technology. I position myself strictly in between the technical and the business world. Thus, I’m happy conversing with technical engineers, whilst equally at home presenting to business leaders. I have a Bachelors degree in Information Systems and graduated with an MBA from London’s Brunel University in 2007.
