I’m Paul Hadley (@hadleypaul) and I’m a freelance videographer, broadcaster, project manager and community engagement specialist, using Alternative Media as a means of delivery.
This blog (for now) is a journal of how I learn, the experiences I go through to get the end results, and what I have to do to get there.
Part of this process was recently about me studying for my Masters Degree in Social Media at Birmingham City University (just click the #masocialmedia category tag to your left to open up all posts about this).
Along with contacts and people I work with, I can provide you with very flexible, cost-effective video, live streaming, podcasting, multi-media, creative design solutions that will give you the communication solution you are looking for.
I’ve worked alongside individuals, community groups and blue chip companies and can easily adapt to your working practices while making myself an invaluable member of the team for the duration that we work together.
My recent achievements include:
Producer, Beyond 2010 International Conference (Digital Birmingham)
Producer, GovDelivery: “Get the Word Out”
Nominated for Royal Television Society Award (Factual)- the “Photographer or Terrorist” Debate, June 2010

I’m based in Stratford-upon-Avon and can travel anywhere. The people I work with are highly knowledgeable and respected in their craft. All are willing to share their knowledge and skills when we pull together on a project.
Whether you need a project manager, content designer and developer, community engagement specialist, a blogger for a social media marketing campaign, videographer, editor, photographer or an original thinker fluent in New Media and social networking, please get in touch and let’s talk about your project.
In addition to the experiences gained and skills I’ve developed over the years, I also bring a pleasant personality to the projects I work on, something you don’t always get when working with communication agencies.
Project and Communications Management, Radio, Blogging, Video, Podcasting, Creative Design or anything else involving Web 2.0 and New Media… these are all things my team and I have a great deal of experience in, and I’m more than happy to help if I can.
