Tanya is an award-winning digital entrepreneur, tech ethicist and author, who has spent her entire career focused on the interaction between people and technology. For 20+ years she was the founder and owner of one of the UK’s first digital marketing agencies, now she is a digital consultant to brands and schools, founder of the digital detox movement Time To Log Off and author of ‘OFF‘.
Tanya has won several awards in her career in digital marketing. In 2014 she was a finalist in the Media category in the ‘First Women’ Awards and was selected by the ‘Women of the Year’ Council to attend their Diamond Jubilee lunch. In 2008 she was a finalist in the Blackberry ‘Outstanding Women in Technology‘ Awards and in 2007 a London finalist for the Ernst & Young ‘Entrepreneur of the Year‘ – and also a semi-finalist in 2009.
Tanya can genuinely claim to be one of the earliest digital pioneers. She launched her digital business just two years after Tim Berners-Lee made the World Wide Web software public; was optimising for search engines three years before Google launched and marketing through social media two years before Facebook was a global platform.
