Browser Media is based in old cavalry barracks and, on a personal level, I have enjoyed knowing the soldiers and officers from The Parachute Regiment, with whom we share a Colchester home.

It therefore seemed fitting to have a military focused episode of The Digital Brew and I was honoured to speak to Colonel Mike Shervington OBE about how social media has changed the life of soldiers and their commanders.

Mike has had a long and distinguished career and offers some fascinating insight into the opportunities and challenges that social media has introduced:

Thank you very much to Mike for spending the time with me and to The Colchester Officers’ Club for having us. Despite its name, the club is open to all and is an oasis in the heart of Colchester, so pop in if you are in the area.

As always, we welcome your feedback on The Digital Brew so please feel free to leave comments below. Thank you very much for the positive response to Episode 1 – I have had some lovely emails about that and am excited about the next few episodes that we have in the pipeline.

We are always on the lookout for interesting topics for future episodes, so please do not hestitate to get in touch if you would like to be involved.
