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.

  • Do you need an afternoon off? A bit of time to chat to your creative contemporaries? And dim sum? US TOO!

Join us for a feast on 27th April. We’re having a get together, a chinwag, letting our hair down and basking in the the glow of great company. Once we’ve feasted, let’s head out for a bit of photo fun because we know one lunch won’t be long enough to get everything off our chests. 
We’re calling it the F*ck Brexit Lunch because we’re sick of the endless purgatory that hangs around like a fart in a lift. 
Spaces are limited, link it in profile, hope to see you there! #blogtacular

  • There have been a lot of posts about the press release from the CMA this week. Lots of them about ‘new’ influencer posting rules, some of them inaccurate or misleading. Have you heard something that worries you? We’re always happy to share knowledge and point you in the right direction so please ask if you need clarification. 
You know we’re big supporters of following the rules and clearly disclosing at the beginning of posts - it’s the only way to cement our reputation as an industry committed to transparency. But, as with all rules getting to grips with them isn’t always plain sailing. Our podcast episode 36 is a masterclass from the ASA themselves in how to keep your ads, gifts and products clear online. #blogtacular
