About George (Sir Thorney)

Hi, my name is George, & I live in Southampton (UK).

I have been an online marketing professional for just over 8 years.

During my time in the profession I’ve worked in a range of industries through me & my brother’s business, Graphics Hub Ltd, in addition to building my own brands & doing various affiliate programmes.

Whilst I’ve completed online marketing for companies of a variety of sizes & industries – from local pizzerias, to national manufacturers – my biggest successes have been in the home improvement sector.

I’m an absolute nerd for everything business & marketing related. I’m constantly trying to expand my knowledge. I love looking into all types of businesses to better understand their growth, how they survive & potential issues with their service.

What I’m currently passionate about

Social Bees
