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 the work he does to encourage collaboration between individuals, businesses and cities, Paul won Dynamo North East’s ‘Collaborator of the Year’ award in 2016 and 2017 and was recognised by Lissted.com as the most influential person in ‘digital’ in the North East of England in 2017.

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.
