John Band is a London-raised, Sydney-based strategy consultant, data analyst and writer. He has experience ranging from blue chips to start-ups across the media, business information, strategy and technology consulting industries.
In the course of his 20 year career in consulting, writing, technology and analysis, John has given presentations to leading industry groups and corporate audiences, and has been interviewed by media sources including the Economist, the BBC, the Financial Times and the London Telegraph.
John writes about transport policy at CityMetric and and about more or less everything else at Banditry, as well as writing about the interplay between data and politics at the now-defunct Liberal Conspiracy and Sharpener. He also likes strange pieces of technology, good food and wine, and travelling to out-of-the-way places — ideally all combined.
At various points along the way, John has managed to pick up a BA/MA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford and a Master of Digital Communication and Culture at the University of Sydney.
