Dominic Fallows – Digital Tech Consultant & Web Developer

Hi, I’m Dominic – Digital Technology Consultant & Web Developer working freelance with businesses and agencies in Manchester, the North West and UK – creating strategies and solutions to deliver high quality digital projects.

I work closely with all teams in a business (new business, planning/strategy, account management, finance, creative, digital, marketing and corporate/board) enabling the creation of effective and inventive digital solutions.

I champion organised and trackable solutions backed up by project management and finance systems inline with world-class methodologies. I have a keen interest in Agile / Scrum but strive to be “technology / methodology neutral” enabling me to work with other established approaches or bespoke approaches.
