About me

My names Franco Boydell and I'm obsessed with telling stories. I'm the Marketing Manager at Knomo, a global accessories brand based in Central London. I joined the business four years ago as an intern and have worked my way up to become a decision-maker, planner, executor and all round Do-er for the business and brand. Working for a SME is a rollercoaster experience that I would recommend to anyone at the beginning of their career. Working between the worlds of fashion, tech, business and travel, I've used the weight of the business (and of course the awesome product) to create truly great moments. From sponsoring Google events to hosting a salon for women in tech, attending the Oslo Freedom Forum to creating an interview series with cutting-edge London entrepreneurs - I try to make the most of every situations. I'm now used to creating and executing marketing strategies, encompassing traditional PR, copywriting, event production, video production, digital communications - email, social, editorial content, web/product content creation - and I'm ready for whatever comes next.
