Electric Dog was created as a result of Thomas Power and Bob Barker, working together in various forms (one offs, full time) and on various projects for large and small organisations. Whenever we visited a company to get them to understand and spell our names correctly we would say to the receptionist: “it’s Power as in Electricity and Barker as in Dog”. We then started saying Electric Dog and people liked it, so when we were looking to set up a new company Electric Dog seemed the natural choice. It also reflects our main aim, which is to be Digital Companions to both individuals and organizations on their journey in the digital economy.
As we have both been in the industry since the early 80’s, Bob taking the Corporate route through both sales and marketing, but largely marketing, and Thomas the entrepreneurial and Board Director route, we compliment each other’s skills and approaches.
Thomas is well known and well followed on social media, which gives him an outstanding global context in the IT industry. Bob has spent years creating strategy and content for the world’s biggest technology brands and is a master at making complex things simple. For more information LinkedIn is the best route to find out more about us.
We are always looking to work with others who are of “like minds” and abilities so do get in touch if you would like to work with us in a partnership or associate role.
