Shelli is driven by the distribution of information and the empowerment that knowledge brings; considering the invention of the printing press and the internet as the two most important events in the evolution of mankind. She was attracted to work within digital marketing as she wanted to understand how you could broadcast a message and be found online.
When she does manage to step away from the computer Shelli is most likely to be found at the gym swimming, at home reading, along the canal on her bike, in a museum or gallery or in the hills walking.
Shelli also runs Creativity101 a subscription newsletter and information resource directed at digital people to teach them how to be more creative and improve their thinking skills. She wrote the free ebook ‘What is Creativity?‘.
