(7 months ago)
LONDON: Tyto, a PR agency focused on the colliding worlds of technology, science and innovation, today launched the Tyto Tech 500 Power List, the UK's first objective study into influence in the UK technology sector.
The study is the first-of-its-kind to combine social, online and offline influence to build a robust data-driven ranking that isn't reliant on single metrics or subjective opinion.
Below are the Top Ten influencers in the Tyto Tech 500 Power List:
1. Stephen Kelly, CEO - Sage Group
2. Mike Butcher MBE, Editor-at-large - TechCrunch
3. Steven Bartlett, CEO - Social Chain
4. Jeremy Waite, Global Leader CMO - IBM
5. Russ Shaw, Founder - The London Advocates
6. Anne Boden, CEO - Starling Bank
7. Dr Sue Black OBE - Founder of #TechMums, Technology Evangelist and UK Government Advisor
8. Rajesh Agrawal, Deputy Mayor of London for Business
9. Alex Hudson, Deputy Editor - Metro
10. Goncalo de Vasconcelos, Co-Founder and CEO - SyndicateRoom
•The study revealed that FinTech (74/500) and MadTech (42/500) are the sectors with the most influencers. The next sectors with a strong number of influencers are AI (32/500) and CleanTech (28/500)
•Under a quarter (24%) of the 500 tech Influencers are female
•The majority of tech influencers are business leaders (60%). They lead the overall tech conversation
•25% of tech influencers are journalists but only 13 influencers come from politics including MPs, deputy mayor of London for business, and government bodies
•Where a technology sector is less mature, journalists lead the conversation
Brendon Craigie, Tyto Co-founder and Managing Partner said:
"There's lots of subjective opinion and rankings of influence, but what's been missing is an objective look at who is influencing the technology landscape and which sub-sectors are dominating. The individuals who've made this year's Tyto Tech 500 Power List combine passion, purpose, and career position, into far reaching public personas that are truly shaping the technology agenda."
