About

A little bit about libertas digital

I'm Gwynn Compton, the founder of Libertas Digital. I've advised two Prime Ministers, managed digital communications across four Budgets (and more policy launches, speeches, conferences, and other events that I've lost count of them!), was responsible for the 2014 election campaign social media of both John Key and the National Party, helped set up the online infrastructure for the Change the NZ Flag campaign, as well of being part of the successful communication's team for then CEO David Thodey at Telstra in Melbourne, and international insurance firm Old Mutual Group in London.

You probably haven't heard of me, but you're more than likely to have seen my work. Having managed digital channels that reached a million Kiwis each week including for Sir John Key, Bill English, and New Zealand's National Party, I helped make their Facebook pages the three fastest growing and most engaged with political pages in the country during my time there.

I've also helped transform the way Ministers and MPs from the National Party talk with their constituents, taking them from a system that valued physical collateral and traditional media above all else, to one that sees digital as a key and equal component of a comprehensive communications strategy to engage with the communities they represent.

In June 2017 I finished work at Parliament to spend time being a stay-at-home dad while my wife went back to work. While I've stopped providing any consultancy services since May 2018, feel free to drop my an email at info@libertas.digital if you have an issue you'd like to discuss and get advice on, and I'm happy to try and put you in touch with someone who can help.
