Steffan Aquarone is a UK digital entrepreneur and speaker whose experiences range from payments to politics.
His projects usually involve disruptive business models and collaboration between large groups of people. One of the more notable was feature-film Tortoise in Love, which was made the entire village of Kingston Bagpuize in Oxfordshire. Tortoise in Love premiered in London’s Leicester Square where the red carpet was flanked by tractors and watched live by 5 million people. His most recent project, mobile payment app Droplet, raised over £1.6m of venture capital in an attempt to do to payments what Skype did to phone calls.
Steff’s background is as a home-schooled member of Education Otherwise, alumnus of Norwich School and graduate of Warwick University (Politics). With a whole-career average feedback score of 96%, Steff has consulted and trained for big brands including John Lewis, Royal Bank of Scotland, Tesco, News Corporation, Vodafone, Land Rover and American Express, held numerous business, non-profit and charity board positions, and spoken around the world on innovation, entrepreneurship and digital marketing.
Steff tells the story of the web to try to understand how it all got so complicated. In fact not all that much has changed and everything starts to make sense once you understand the relationship between technology innovation and human behaviour.
Whether it’s the story of how war invented the web, or how the little village of Kingston Bagpupize made the big film, putting Steff in front of your audience will make them stand up and take notice, applaud or leave (whichever are your aim).
