Back in 1995 Barry Adams predicted that the Internet was ‘just a fad’ and ‘would amount to nothing’. He has come far since then. Starting out his career in the mid-’90s in all things online as an intranet content manager, Barry has worked in a wide variety of positions including corporate webmaster for multinationals, in-house SEO specialist for a large regional newspaper, and web consultant for SMEs.
Now he’s the Digital Services Director at Pierce Communications in Belfast, where he leads a team delivering web development and digital marketing services to a wide range of clients in the UK and Ireland. He also regularly lectures on SEO and PPC for the University of Ulster and is a regular on the UK & Ireland digital marketing conference circuit.
Some of his hobbies and interests include science and philosophy, internet freedom and privacy, and playing ultra-violent videogames.
