Prior to Cisco, Ian held Head of Content roles at London-based agencies. He began his career at a B2B publisher, where he became Editor, before going freelance. He’s had articles published in The Independent, Information Age, Evening Standard and Energy Economist. He also authored industry reports as an analyst with Juniper Research.
