Dominic Sparkes runs Tempero, the social media management company. It protects more blue chip brands online than any other moderation company in the world. Over 120 staff moderate millions of messages 24/7 in over 15 languages for over 70 clients across over 60 platforms.
When he started his career at EMI Records in 1994, he had the only colour PC in the building and the sole connection to the internet.
His role combined new media (as it was then) and video production with responsibilities ranging from creating websites and enhanced CD’s for artists such as Pink Floyd, Robbie Williams, Prince and Cliff Richard.
After a five year stint, he joined Granada as Head of Production for their interactive division, responsible for the creation of internal and external client sites ranging from Corrie, Emmerdale and Popstars to Liverpool FC, Camelot and Boots.
Four years later, he spun out the Community Department from Granada Interactive with business partner Jasmine McGarr: Tempero was born.
