I’m Laila Takeh – a digital geek.

I’m currently CMO at Raising IT having moved from being Head of Digital Engagement at UNICEF UK at the end of September 2014. I’ve got a long history in charity digital, with experience at the British Heart Foundation, Action on Hearing Loss, the MS Society and various voluntary roles outside of this.  If you’re interested you can find out more about my career history on LinkedIn and my speaking gigs etc. Everything here represents my views only.

This blog started as a bit of an experiment. I was somewhat dubious about whether I’d just add noise to an already crowded topic area. Somewhere along the way I started to get some good feedback but more than anything this blog has helped me shape my thinking. There’s something about putting your thoughts into a public domain that helps you make more sense of them!

If there is something you’d like to see on this blog please let me know – I’m going to try to post answers and thoughts that have been prompted by questions and conversations I’ve had. So I want to hear from you.

I also like art and live in London – so you might find the occasional post about that here too.

Here I am in other places…
