Jack Wallington, The Student Room


Jack began his time at The Student Room as Head of Consumer Marketing; quickly moving up the ranks to become Marketing Director and Big Community Specialist, now responsible for client facing B2B marketing, consumer facing marketing and community teams, PR and comms, brand, design and UX, community and a network of 60+ volunteers.

The Student Room is the world’s largest student community and is the place that 15 – 24 year olds meet to get support, socialise, discuss and pro-actively research their academic choices, career decisions and every other aspect of life. It has grown by over 600% in the last four years with well over 2 million registered members and up to 35,000 new posts per day.

Twice winner of Dotmusic (now Yahoo! Music) Silver awards and included in the Media Week 30 Under 30, Jack has a self-proclaimed obsession for online communities, content, marketing and business growth.

Jack will be speaking at 0930 on Friday 21 June 2013 on ‘What Students Want’. (Please use the main menu above to view the programme relevant to your target age group.)
