Keynote Speaker

From being the voice of Dove’s global social media to consulting on social media strategy for the likes of Heinz, Unilever, P&G and Diageo, Emma Gannon is a blogger, writer and marketer at heart and loves the science behind building a good brand.

She wrote her own weekly online column for the Telegraph rounding up the viral news in 2013. She’s written for Stylist, Grazia,  The Independent, Thought Catalog, The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, Time Out and more. She is the former social media editor at The Debrief and British GLAMOUR.

Emma’s debut non-fiction book for young adults CTRL ALT DELETE: How I Grew Up Online was published by Ebury Publishing, Penguin Random House, in July 2016. It was selected as Amazon’s “Best Books Of The Month” the same month.

Her podcast of the same name hit number 16 in the iTunes charts on its first week of release and was picked as Editor’s Choice on iTunes. It features guests such as Elizabeth Gilbert and Zoella – it has been downloaded 150,000 times since it’s launch in April 2016. In July 2016 it was selected by The Times in the “top 20 podcasts to download this summer”.

In 2010, she founded emmagannon.co.uk, a popular culture blog which was nominated for a Cosmopolitan Award in 2012 and won Highly Commended in the Young Person’s Recognition at the 2015 National Blog Awards.

Her blog newsletter has been named a “must-follow” by Harper’s Bazaar, The Debrief and Grazia. She was also shortlisted for a “30 under 30 to watch” by MHP comms hosted at BAFTA and named as one of Lena Dunham’s “favourite UK women” in the January 2015 issue of Time Out.

Emma will be giving the closing keynote address at Blogtacular 2017.
