Welcome to my little corner of the Internet.
I’m Emma Gannon. A blogger, author, speaker, podcast host and digital consultant.
At the start of my career I worked at some of the smartest creative agencies out there: Hill & Knowlton, Edelman & We Are Social. I love consulting brands (and people) on social media strategy and getting noticed in the ever-changing digital space.
I love writing. I wrote my own weekly online column for the Telegraph in 2013 called “Women’s Bits” – and have written for the likes of Stylist, Grazia, The Debrief, The Pool, The Metro, The Telegraph, MTV, GLAMOUR, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Independent, Thought Catalog, Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, Time Out and more. I used to be the social media editor at The Debrief and British GLAMOUR.
I’m signed with Diane Banks Literary Agency (books) and Alight Talent Agency (everything else). My debut non-fiction book for young adults CTRL ALT DELETE: How I Grew Up Online came out in the UK in July published by Ebury Publishing, Penguin Random House. It was selected as Amazon’s “Best Books Of The Month” in July. I’m currently writing my second book.
My 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.
In July 2016 it was selected by The Times in the “top 20 podcasts to download“, ELLE UK as “top 9 podcasts to download“, Marie Claire‘s “career-changing podcasts“, “what to do on your commute” by The Pool and “podcasts to listen to in the morning” by Grazia. It was mentioned in the Guardian’s “best of radio 2016“.
I founded this lifestyle & writing blog in 2010, which has been nominated for a Cosmopolitan Award in 2012 and won Highly Commended in the Young Person’s Recognition at the 2015 National Blog Awards and shortlisted for a “30 under 30 to watch” by MHP comms hosted at BAFTA.
I’m a keen speaker and panellist and have spoken on Sky News, at The Oxford Union, at Social Media Week London, Facebook’s Marketing Conference, the Turkish Blog Awards in Istanbul. I also featured in BBC’s No Small Talk series, a new kind of talk-show aimed at young women, filmed in 360.
I’ve hosted workshops and panels at the Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch House and Google.
I’m a regular guest lecturer at Condé Nast Fashion College and was a guest curator at Cheltenham Literature Festival 2016.
