Jim Bowes



Certified ScrumMaster


I'm a business facing technologist and the CEO and Co-founder of Manifesto - a digital agency based in London.

I've had a successful career in online for over 10 years. Much of which has been on multi-million pound software development and content management projects.

I've worked across the public and private sector in a wide variety of online roles, both in the marketing and technology parts of organisations.

I've also found time to own a tea room and a clothes shop, manage some bands and take three one-man comedy shows to the Edinburgh Festival.

I live in central London with my wife and a cat called Catty. My spare time is split between running a music website and record label (www.josaka.com), writing and comedy.
