I am the Founder and Managing Partner of Harper Gray, a strategic comms agency working with some of the most exciting tech companies in Europe. We work alongside the founders of early stage companies to use communications to drive their business forward.

I’ve been lucky enough to spend much of my career working in the tech and venture space where I’ve gained experience in all areas of comms. Most recently, I was Communications Director for the global Venture Capital firm Index Ventures, where I split my time between working on the branding and comms for the firm and advising some of their amazing portfolio companies like Funding Circle, Adyen, onefinestay, Zendesk, Bitpay, notonthehighstreet and Mind Candy to name a few.

Previously I was with global agency Brunswick Group, including 5 years spent working in their New York office, where my specialisation in tech began. I’ve worked with clients on corporate reputation and positioning, thought-leadership, issues and change management and IPOs. I’ve also worked extensively on M&A including the sale of Skype to Microsoft, advising the tech PE firm Silver Lake and its portfolio companies (WME, GoDaddy, Alibaba, Global Blue) and in 2013 on the $24bn LBO of Dell, Inc.
