About Debbie Porter

Debbie Porter is the Managing Director of Destination Digital, a digital marketing consultancy based in the heart of the Peak District who work on SEO, social media, website, PPC and content marketing projects.

Debbie leads a small team, and the company works with many brands that can be found on the High Street such as HECK, Mr Fothergill’s, and Haws Watering Cans, as well as locally they run the digital marketing for Arts Derbyshire.

With over 25 years’ experience in the internet industry, Debbie’s been at the heart of the evolution of the industry from its very earliest days. Working in the dot.com bubble in the 90s in Central London proved a sharp learning curve as the 'Internet' established itself as something more than just a curiosity. Taking BT PlusNet to a float on the stock market and subsequent buy out by BT some 10 years later showed how quickly the internet industry matured in a short space of time.

It’s this hard-won experience that Debbie brings to her work with the consultancy’s portfolio in the present day, in an industry that continues to evolve at rapid pace. Having ‘seen it all’ over the years in a wide range of roles, including that of a small business owner, she can turn her experience to lots of scenarios in both large companies and small businesses alike.

This workshop is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and High Peak Borough Council
