Neil Byers

Digital Strategy & Product Lead

Leading the creation and growth of digital products

In order to successfully lead the initiation, development, and continuous evolution of digital products, it’s important to have a wide knowledge of the digital space. So through my work I’ve ensured that my skills are far ranging.

I have experience in many digital areas, including:

  • Digital strategy
  • Product design and development
  • Agile project management
  • User experience
  • Cross functional team leadership
  • Hosting, cyber security and resilience
  • SEO
  • Analytics

I use all these skills to lead digital products from idea, through development, to launch and beyond.
