Everything about Dean is unique. He is sought after by companies and conferences for his original perspective and insight.

This means that his knowledge and application are at the forefront, blending current and emerging technologies with design and a human-centric perspective.
Dean has the rare ability to look at technologies from a humanistic perspective. Very often technology can become the central focus for a brand, so much so that human beings become detached from the story that a brand is trying to tell.
Dean firmly places the human at the centre of everything by not only exploring the potential of technology for the companies he works with but more so by starting with the human being and working back to the technology.
In order to become a company of tomorrow, Dean believes that brands must be thinking about how technologies and humans exist in one narrative so they connect rather than disconnect with a brand and the story it tells. As a prolific writer, commentator and BBC Tech pundit, Dean’s views have appeared in a wide range of international publications.
