Our Speaker – John Espirian (in his own words)

John Espirian photoI’m a former software & hardware tester, a former Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and a former director of the UK’s largest editorial society.

 

When I worked as a quality assurance manager for one of the UK’s largest internet service providers, I used to be the guy answering everyone’s questions:

  • “How does this work?”
  • “What does this mean?”
  • “Why’s this bloody error happening?”

 

 

I’d explain how stuff worked so that anyone would get it. I was a natural teacher.

 

In 2009, I went solo and became an independent technical copywriter.

 

As a one-person business, I can be sure that there’s zero office politics at Espirian Towers. And I can make my tea with two teabags and no one can tell me off.

 

B2B clients hire me to explain how their products, services and processes work. This includes:

  • web pages
  • blogs & articles
  • case studies
  • LinkedIn profiles

 

I’m known in part for my book, Content DNA, where I talk all about how to define a personal brand and then to be the same “shape” everywhere. My personal brand values are:

  • Teacher not preacher
  • Cheeky geek
  • Attitude of gratitude
  • Eager experimenter
  • Relentlessly helpful

 

It’s the last of these that’s the real anchor value of my personal brand, and it’s what a lot of people echo back when they interact with me on social media.

 

BitmoJohn is my cartoon alter ego. He’s a younger, slimmer and better-at-football version of me. I use him as part of my visual branding, in my social media posts, webinars and other presentations.

 

I work remotely with clients around the world from my home office in Newport, South Wales, UK.

PS. My full title is Lord John Espirian (pronounced ess–PIH–ree–unn) of Hougun Manor.
