Chief Technology Officer
Aqueduct

After a stint as a rocket scientist and web developer, Guillaume has been working as a Technical Director and CTO for over 16 years at agencies including TMWUnlimited and Proximity and is now CTO of London Co-creation agency Aqueduct. 

He has spent the last 10 years as a practitioner of Agile and Lean principles helping agencies and clients be more effective and flexible in an ever-changing digital landscape. 

He's the co-founder of easyBacklog.com the free agile backlog management tool and the Agile for Agencies meet-up which spreads the word and helps organisations implement award-winning agile practices.

 

"For 10 years the DADI awards have been an open window into our industry, promoting and showcasing the best work agencies produce for their clients.  During that time the technology available has changed dramatically and we've seen huge changes in our behaviour as consumers, so the awards really represent the cutting edge of our industry’s endeavours.

As a technologist in the digital advertising industry for the last 20 years, I am delighted to be a judge at the 2017 DADI Awards. I’ll be looking for work that has driven great engagement by using technical innovation to drive product and service innovation that really benefits consumers."
