PlaceSpeak Team Profile: Michael McDowell
Michael McDowell is PlaceSpeak’s Business Development Consultant for Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
Michael is a politics graduate with 15 years business development experience gained in Scotland, Australia and Northern Ireland. Michael approached PlaceSpeak following a TEDx presentation in Belfast in 2012, as it was clear to him that the public consultative process in UK and Ireland would benefit greatly from using PlaceSpeak.
His background is firmly in the innovation space having been involved in some of the first e-learning projects in Scotland in the early 2000’s and more recently being part of a small team that took the idea of an online property trading platform from the back of a napkin to a profitable multinational business.
Michael is raising the profile of PlaceSpeak in the UK and Ireland within the Business Community, Public Sector and Third Sector. With several projects in the pipeline, we are looking forward to working with many organisations and showing the real benefits that PlaceSpeak can bring to any consultative process.
