Kleon came to theEword in order to nurture relationships with clients and explore new business opportunities. Being our Business Development Director allows him to combine his knowledge of digital marketing with his love of presenting and networking. Kleon’s previous experience ranges from work with a Fortune Top 100 company to self-employed business ventures.

Before joining theEword, Kleon worked in a pro-active role at Apple, delivering seminars and training on Apple’s revolutionary new products.

Prior to this Kleon worked towards his BA Honours degree in Digital Marketing and Communications at MMU Business School. However, his love of online marketing began much earlier, with a rewarding internship at an international theatre company. This position saw him collaborating on projects ranging from working with press to online brand building.
