Hi Paul,

I'll nominate Mark Gregson who joined Link Digital a few moths back. I'm
keen for him to get as much exposure into OK stuff as possible :)

Alex Sadleir and I can certainly ping him on anything we see going on and I
expect that others like Steve Bennett and Rosie will be able to continue
sharing via this list to make sure the good work from Australia is getting

Mark was previously with QUT and has domain experience in the GLAM sector -
most relevantly within Libraries.

Either way - will put it in as a nomination. No stress if someone else can
step in and take on the role.
