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 the New Zealand National Party, I helped make their Facebook pages the three fastest growing and most engaged with political pages in the country since 2014.

I've also helped transform the way that 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 component of a comprehensive communications strategy to engage with the communities they represent.

While I finished up at Parliament at the end of June 2017 to be a stay-at-home Dad, I'm still available to provide consultancy work, and expert insight and analysis into the world of politics and political social media.

So if that sounds like the type of knowledge and experience you'd like to benefit from, then contact me at info@libertas.digital
