@MrLondon - aka Dave Burt - is one of the world’s leading social media influencers. He leads @LONDON which is a social media agency AND a social media platform. The Instagram channel is the No.1 Lifestyle Channel in the UK, and is a Top 50 channel for the UK, and Top 5,000 globally. He has generated over 3 Billion views from his 2.5 million followers across narratives of food, travel, fashion, music and coffee and built a bonafide social media agency & consultancy off the back of it. Dave and his team consult with global brands, helping with ideation, social media strategy, content production, influencer campaigns and brand experiences, making him one of London’s most influential social media entrepreneurs.
Dave grew up west of London in Maidenhead, not far from Windsor, and only a stone’s throw from the world-renowned Fat Duck restaurant in Bray Village. He spent 15+ years in IT and Telecoms in London rising quickly through very technical roles, to managing a national telecoms network for Verizon with capex in excess of $38m. Later he would transition into consultancy and sales managing major clients such as Morgan Stanley, Citi, Bloomberg & Reuters and selling a broad set of consulting services for Hewlett Packard.
Eventually, as Dave’s Instagram began to go viral having netted significant endorsements from Jamie Oliver, and Instagram themselves, he quit the stress of the city by selling his house and car in order to pursue his passion for Instagram & Social Media.
Today, more than 8 years after quitting the city, Dave leads a social media agency and editorial team that tell London’s story beautifully, with the aim of inspiring Londoners and visitors to see the city the way that he sees it… the most beautiful and diverse city in the world, rich in history, bursting with innovation, thriving culturally, making it the number 1 destination in the world.
On Dave’s @MrLondon personal channel he appears in front of the lens a lot more, sharing his passion for lifestyle, travel and fashion, his adventures with his partner Alice Sampo whilst regularly serving up inspiration and lessons learnt from his entrepreneurial endeavours.
Having worked with many of the most iconic global consumer brands Dave and his team have earned a reputation for creating ground-breaking and innovative social content, all over the world. The @LONDON agency helps brands to be strategic in their use of social media and influencers, in order to amplify live events, brand experiences, products and services, to targeted audiences and markets, and in order to build community around their brand.
