Hannon Digital was founded by Colm Hannon, an Irish technology entrepreneur in London with a background in elite sport and enterprise social media. In 2009 Colm founded The Digital Leaders Think Tank, an exclusive invitation-only round table think tank for global leaders in digital, marketing and communications. The DLTT members’ feedback to Colm was that they nearly all wanted to work with a digital company that could blend the capabilities of a social media agency with those of a full-service digital marketing agency and a digital communications consultancy: and from that advice Hannon Digital was born.
Today Hannon Digital is exactly what the Digital Leaders asked for; a one-stop shop for B2B digital marketing and communications advice, training and managed services. If you are a leader from a B2B company and you are serious about improving your digital marketing and communications in one of your teams or departments – or across your whole organisation – then get in touch today for a conversation with Colm or one of the team.
