Where it all started...
People Matters Network
was started by Jonathan Bostock in 2012 following his 25 years at market and social researchers BMG (Bostock Marketing Group).
Ever since he first launched BMG, Jonathan's real passion and interest has been in the engagement and empowerment of communities. Jonathan has always been fascinated by what exactly empowers people to connect and stay connected. What is their common bond? Couldn't this be used far more effectively by providers of services and products?
During his time at BMG, Jonathan became aware of just how much time, energy and money was being spend by organisations on gathering fresh insight and replenishing huge banks of existing evidence.
Significant efficiencies and huge savings could clearly be made.
Surely, people could be empowered to share and exchange their opinions, particularly if they knew their views would be taken seriously and result in better services, better products and better facilities for themselves, their family, and their friends. In a nutshell, people could become real 'communities of influence'. Imagine the savings, imagine the efficiencies, and imagine the returns.
Couldn't greater gains also be made if the providers and commissioners of services were prepared to work together? Rather than feeling uncomfortable about sharing information, why not make collaboration the norm.
And so, PMNet was launched
After 25 years, Jonathan left BMG and set up People Matters Network (PMNet)
By bringing together people from a research and engagement background with those skilled in digital marketing, developing software, designing websites and building applications - the offer from PMNet
is focussed on delivery and outcomes.
, our focus is on ensuring that what we produce is what will be used. Yes, it is largely about keeping pace with change, but it's also recognising that people are different, with some slower to adopt and adapt than others.
New applications must function in new environments on the latest technology of choice, and both new and traditional channels of engagement must work effectively together.
