Las Vegas Speakers
When it comes to email, there’s nothing Paul’s more passionate about, than delivering great email experiences.
This has led him to challenge long-established email design and development practices, and introduce innovative techniques, to make email more recipient-friendly, and accessible, practices and techniques in which HTML typography plays a key role.
He’s the author of numerous articles, written to this end, including those published by Net magazine, Really Good Emails, EnvatoTuts+ and Litmus, as well as his book, ‘A Type of Email: A handbook for working with HTML typography in email’.
Paul is recognised as a lead advocate of accessibility in email, which, last year, led to his nomination for the 2019 Business Disability Awards, ‘Disability-Smart Influencer’ Award, alongside the BBC and Virgin Media.
In addition to speaking at the Email Innovations Summit in both Las Vegas and London, he’s also delivered talks at Litmus Live and Inbox Expo.
