Hello, Ciao, Hallo, नमस्कार!
My name is Avi Koirala. I am an alumnus of the University of the Highlands and Islands. I live in the beautiful south coast of England and I am a digital business mentor, growth hacker and an internet enthusiast. The dictionary doesn’t have a definition for the third word just yet, but if it were to exist, I suspect it would look something like this:
Internet enthusiast [/ˈin(t)ərˌnet/ /enˈTH(y)o͞ozēˌast/] (n): 1. One whose hand has molded to fit the contour of the computer mouse; 2. One who feels energized by the glow of a computer screen in much the same way a fresh cup of coffee makes most people feel in the morning.
I have been online since AltaVista, Netscape Navigator, Geocities and Microsoft Frontpage. I make a living by educating on and managing search and social (both organic & paid) as the Global Digital Manager (Search & Social) for De’Longhi Group – a world leader in small home, kitchen and comfort appliances; looking after digital presence, acquisition and retention for Kenwood, De’Longhi, Braun and Ariete brands globally. Whenever I get some free time, I help local SMEs to identify their business needs and guide them to the right path to excel digitally.
I am one of the judges of UK Search Awards 2015 and 2016.
