Kathryn Tyler & Nikki Cochrane (Digital Mums)
Kathryn Tyler and Nikki Cochrane are the co-founders of Digital Mums, which they launched in 2014 to empower mums to find #WorkThatWorks, through upskilling them with in-demand social media and digital skills via their new programme – The Digital Retox which is designed to fast-track students’ understanding of the key digital technologies and skills crucial to the modern workplace.
Kathryn has worked with some of the most innovative schools around the world, including the Innovation Unit, where she spent four years as Head of Communications and then Head of Digital. Nikki discovered her love of social media at the most famous ad agency in the world, M&C Saatchi.
Kathryn and Nikki originally set up their own social media agency a few years ago and were overwhelmed with how many businesses needed help to build and manage their social media presence. They knew they needed to take on more people and realised that mums offered the perfect solution.
Their pioneering work and campaigning for Flexible Working has gained them high-profile awards including Red Women of the Year, Marie Claire Future Shapers and Campaign Digital Mavericks.
