“If you are not changing faster than the world around you, you are going backwards. It’s time to close the doors!” After 10 years at the heart of this industry, first in custom publishing and now content marketing, Fergus is fascinated by the change it is going through. His passion lies in the commercials behind each project: how Edge can drive a profitable return for its clients and leverage the owned media it creates via sponsorship and partnerships. Fergus is the co-author of ADMA’s Content Marketing white paper and his views on content marketing have been extensively published by B&T, BRW, AdNews and Mumbrella. He has enjoyed speaking at conferences and business forums, such as ad:tech Sydney, Online Retailer Conference, B&T MAD Week and the CMO Summit, and driving the content agenda.
