Euan Semple , whom I had the pleasure to meet a couple of times, has left the BBC and started out as an independent.
There are many a suit working in our field who wouldn't know one end of a CoP from another, I'm happy to say Euan not only gets it, but he has joined the few of us who have made it stick within large organisations. A small select group.
His web site is here , I'd be more than delighted to recommend him to anyone wanting good solid advice in this field.
And just to think the first time I visited him in the bowels of the BBC in DigiLab, I was wittering to him and his colleagues how North Sea engineers (plus others round the world) socialise with each other on how to run, fix and maintain their complex plumbing systems (sorry multi million dollar production platforms - ahem)
Now why would the BBC want to know about that I thought at the time!
Good luck Euan
