Paul Lancaster

After spending almost 15yrs helping people start and grow their own businesses (or projects) whilst working for Generator, Project North East, Shell LiveWIRE, Sage and Tech North (part of Tech City UK), Paul Lancaster (aka @lordlancaster) became an expert in using digital marketing and social media to share ideas, promote products and services and build communities of startup founders and creatives.

In April 2016, he launched ‘Plan Digital UK’ to share his content marketing, business development and partnerships expertise with startups and scale-ups across the North of England.

Known as a ‘SuperConnecter’ for all of the work he does to encourage collaboration between individuals, businesses and cities, Paul won the ‘Collaborator of the Year‘ award at Dynamo North East’s Dynamites16 event in October 2016 and was recognised by Lissted as one of the ‘Top North East England Digital Influencers on Twitter‘.

He’s also Founder & Event Producer of the annual 5-day ‘Newcastle Startup Week‘ festival in May and co-author of the ‘Small Business Marketing for Dummies‘ book which is published by Wiley.
