My experience spans 5 different sectors and have worked with over 2 dozen companies of the likes of Sony, Skype, LG, Motorola and others in diverse capacities.
Area Covered: Global
Work Experience Summary: I am extremely interested in the company as to my mind, mobile is centre stage today for any brand that is smart about how to reach, engage and build personal relationships. Mobile is an amazing, incredibly penetrated medium, personal, that offers infinite new possibilities.
I have three major passions: Social Media, Mobile, and Distribution Channels.
I am the co-founder of Mobile Monday Malta, where in just about one year, we developed a household name, partnering with Vodafone, and the Malta Communications authority, and managed to bring together over 100 top executives on the Island.
I pushed hard to get Malta to warm up the present and future that Mobile represents, by discussing topics such as Mobile Entrepreneurship (Starting up an App-based business is not difficult, and if the correct elements are in place, it might just become massive - Think Angry Birds); infact, I got Peter Vesterbacka to the Island - the now Mighty Eagle of Rovio - to discuss this same point: Mobile lowers the barriers to entry for entrepreneurs - even more than the web did, to go global.
Other Events were relating to Online Gaming - an Industry I consult, and am passionate about, and Location-awareness and the future of Retail-based business (Groupon meets Fousquare); This proved to be very much the case as today Groupon Now! is precisely this!
I was also part of the team that creating Malta's biggest Mobile-related event, called Mobile Gaming Summit, bringing to the Island over 80 top executives from 40 countries and totalling over 250 people in attendance.
I consult companies - from App developers, to Media companies to Gaming companies on how to use the Mobile Channel for best effect; how to build campaigns using the medium; how to get their brand on it, and how effectively to build a revenue stream off it.
I am passionate, and that is for sure. I have been also very active with writing, having penned articles for TechCrunch, IGaming Business and IGaming Business Magazine, EL Pais (Interviewed), Malta Times, and Money Magazine (a Vodafone Malta Magazine).
I would love to move to Ireland and help with the business, get involved, and grow the business further. I have a very good network, and able to grow it, plus I am conversant with Technology (have a Technology based degree) and have been following trends assiduously.
This is a reference from James McKeown, Editor of IGaming Business Magazine about me:
"Rene Colin Magri brought his online technology expertise to my attention over 12 months ago, and has since been providing commentary and insight for our industry publications, iGaming Business and iGB Affiliate magazines. Rene has been a valuable barometer as to where the next moves forward in technology will take place, and what platforms, and is a regular correspondent at the biggest trade shows and conferences that take place across Europe. He is in constant contact with the leading players in the Internet field, including the likes of Loic Le Meur, entrepreneur and founder of Europe’s Le Web conference.
Rene has been instrumental in helping us to widen our scope of the Internet Sector in our publications, particularly to our affiliate audience, and is a valued member of our iGaming and Affiliate contributors".
Attached are some articles and the EL Pais interview I had related to Skype.
This is a video interview I did with Ric Ferraro, VP of Golden Gekko about Location-Awareness:
This is an eMag I edited featuring interviews with the likes of Dennis Crowley, Co-Founder of Fousquare and others.
Look forward to discuss further.
