Tom de Grunwald

Tom works with digital media and film to help empower citizens when they vote, and to help companies and charities communicate effectively. A proud ORG member since 2009, he’s long been passionate about how the Internet and social media enable diverse creative voices: freedoms he has joined the board to help defend.

Tom co-founded Swap my Vote as a direct, practical response to the UK’s iniquitous electoral system. In his day job, he has managed creative teams at award-winning agencies, producing and/or devising social and digital strategy for projects including Downton Abbey, Magnum Photos, and Unreported World; working with Channel 4 to producing Shorts with Scope aimed at shifting attitudes towards disability.

Tom sat on the board of Blurrt as Director of Media and led the social media startup’s offering to the media industries. He is currently consulting for clients including teams at the BBC, Viacom, and Westminster City Council, providing training on digital engagement strategy and skills.
