The impact of the Coronavirus in Wales

Now living outside of Wales, I wanted to see Wales’ numbers for cases rather than just at a UK wide level.

In its earlier stages, the only available information was at health board level, directly from the Public Health Wales (PHW).

I took that data and combined it with Office for National Statistic data of local health boards in Wales to visually represent the severity.

Knowing that the Welsh language isn’t always the priority, I decided to just build the dashboard in Welsh.

PHW have now released an extensive dashboard at a local authority level.

Take a look at the impact of the Coronavirus in Wales.

How to avoid this influencer marketing fail

Thoughts on a recent article about an influencer with millions of followers struggling to sell products to their followers


  1. Make sure your followers are the right audience for the type of product you’re trying to push. If not, use ads to find the right audience.
  2. Sell with a compelling narrative. Share why you believe a product is worth their time/money.
  3. Post often about the product. Seeing your genuine enthusiasm (posting multiple times) is going to social proof it, leading to a greater potential of a sale. Self-promotion can be tough but it’s so necessary!

It was great to speak to NTU computer science students. Was there as part of a ‘Work in tech’ event where a few of us Fellows gave intro presentations, Q&A, then conducted some mock interviews with the students to give them some good experience and constructive feedback.

Here’s my short intro…

What Entrepreneurs Really Want Millennials To Know

I’ve started to see the same narrative repeated in the interaction between successful entrepreneurs and those frustrated millennials.
