Mevan is an internet native, a talented content creator, and a digital activist. She first started working with SXSELondon in 2010, when she successfully roped in over 400 people to turn up to a noisy but terribly polite flash mob in Trafalgar square. She has since been finding ever newer and more unusual ways to engage people on and offline, using the kind of creativity not normally found outside of adventure games!
Mevan has spent the last few years working at Cancer Research UK and as the Head of Digital for Bite the Ballot, an organisation dedicated to getting young people registered to vote, where she planned and executed the first ever National Voter Registration Day. She now works at Full Fact – Britain’s independent fact checking organisation and is gearing up for some exciting General Election plans. Mevan also creates digital (and real life) treasure hunts for brands and organisations for the purposes of training and team building… and occasionally just for the hell of it..
