Back in March, we launched our Virtual Coffee Mornings series to keep conversations running throughout the South West digital and tech community over lockdown. Experienced leaders and founders from Bristol, Bath and beyond came together online to discuss the future of tech, as well as to offer advice for business development and resilience during a crisis. In case you missed the live events, we’ll be sharing stories and insights from our wonderful guest speakers over the course of the next few weeks.

This week we spoke with Rich Keith, CEO of Fourth Floor Creative for Coffee Morning #9. They are a fast-growing specialist influencer marketing agency based in the heart of Bristol and with offices in Bordeaux, Toronto and Brighton. Rich has 20 years experience in media, the last six working with online content creators, he believes that content marketing is the future of display advertising and that partnering with the right creators is the most powerful way to produce advertising that will connect and engage audiences. Fourth Floor works for creators, brands and audiences through amazing video content, high-quality merchandise and must-attend events.  They are exclusive commercial partners for The Yogscast and manage their commercial operations.
