Alex Packham

I am Founder and CEO of ContentCal, a business that provides social media software and services to power thousands of companies’ social media marketing.

Here’s the short version of my story:

  • I started my first business at University; a social media and website development company. I also created a viral site called ‘Cardiff Banter’.
  • I then went onto run ODEON Cinema’s social media for 2 years before progressing to work for NOW TV, part of Sky, and ran the social media team there. These jobs formed the backbone of my career.
  • In 2014, I founded a social media agency called ASTP. We grew very quickly and I learned a huge amount about growing a business, building a team, and working with clients ranging from tiny SMEs to large corporates.
  • In 2016, I completed an accelerator scheme in London called ‘The Accelerator Academy’ focusing on building a technology platform called ContentCal whilst growing the agency. The process changed my business in ways I could  have never imagined – ContentCal now has thousands of businesses signed up and grows month on month
