Stephen King
Senior Lecturer in Media at Middlesex University, Dubai


Stephen has been living and working in the Middle East since 2002. He has developed a broad network of contacts from 15 years working in public relations and representing billion-dollar technology companies including Cisco, Microsoft, Nokia and the UAE's incumbent telco, Etisalat. Between 2013 and 2017 he started developing a global franchisee network for a business process that enabled the rapid creation and distribution of social media ready video content at an affordable and profitable price point. However, the subsequent launch of AI-powered photography and video editing Apps rendered the business concept defunct.

He is currently teaching and researching in the media department of Middlesex University Dubai, exploring new uses for podcasting and trying to get excited about NFTs.
