Laurence O'Toole

Laurence O'Toole

Founder & CEO

An entre­pre­neur with 20+ years’ expe­ri­ence in con­sumer and B2B inter­net prod­uct devel­op­ment, sales and mar­ket­ing. His expe­ri­ence includes spells in cor­po­rate life with Fujit­su & Thom­son Direc­to­ries and in the last cou­ple of years his own boot-strapped ven­tures.

Along the way, he’s built a suc­cess­ful online direc­to­ry and PPC plat­form for SMEs, suc­cess­ful­ly part­ner­ing with Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo. He’s devel­oped down­load­able golf lessons with famous golf coach­es and built an adver­tis­ing-fund­ed golf com­mu­ni­ty (not his best idea!). His cur­rent ven­ture Author­i­tas is a big data sci­ence-dri­ven SaaS plat­form for Con­tent Mar­ket­ing and SEO Pro­fes­sion­als world­wide.
