Now, through content business AylmerAnderson which he co-founded, Sean advises corporations and business leaders on content strategy for both high-stakes and stakeholder engagement settings and creates content ranging from white papers and regulatory communications to social media content and magazines. He also manages pop-up newsrooms for summits, events and virtual conferences, providing experienced journalists to cover presentations and discussions, creating content that can be shared with delegates, media and on clients’ owned channels.
