Lee Bryant is passionate about using social technology to put humans front and centre of the way we do things in the Twenty-First Century. He has been playing with words and computers since the age of 10, but it was in the mid-1990s, whilst working in international politics and diplomacy, that he discovered the immense power of the internet to influence and orchestrate change. He believes social networks, not bureaucracies, are the organising principle of the current era, and is excited about further exploring new forms of highly connected organisations. After running a web agency focused on knowledge sharing for 6 years, he co-founded Headshift in 2002 to investigate new uses for social technology inside companies and organisations, which became a leading international social business consultancy and was acquired by Dachis Group in 2009. Lee was joint MD of Dachis Group Europe from 2009 until June 2013. In the summer of 2013, he co-founded a new company, POST*SHIFT, dedicated to exploring the intersection between new social technologies and new thinking on organisational structure and culture.
