About Dom Hodgson

Dom has spent the last 15 years working on the web in some way, whilst writing this he has now realised that is getting old & started to think about his own mortality & what he's done with his life.

What is he up to?

Dom no longer runs a sweet shop, he still runs a conference (as soon as he finds a decent venue), and a technology startup (which you can read about below), he also runs LeedsHack. *New for 2015* Dom has started to do some stand up gigs around the local area (as he still hasn't learned to drive)



Dom Hodgson is CTO of LinkRisk, an Online Marketing SaaS platform that deals with a lot of data (we are hiring!)

Dom is currently not speaking at any events in the near future, he has however spoken at conferences like A4UExpo, PayPalX, SASCon, Bamboo Juice, Think Visibility, CAPLondon, Speak the Web and PMI Berlin. If your interested in him speaking at you're event just get in touch!

Hack Days

Dom has run LeedsHack (along with a fantastic team) for the past five years and try and attend hackdays (although he's starting to get a little old to stay up all night hacking these days)

Video Evidence




Dom is always one our most popular speakers. He always brings something new and has the audience in stitches. Educational and entertaining. Throughly recommended - Kelvin Newman (BrightonSEO)
You can always rely on Dom to bring visual aids and a touch of humour to proceedings on any event's conference agenda. I liked to place Dom's sessions nearer the end of the day as we found his honest and comedic approach was well received by all of our delegates who'd been wired with learnings all day. While you'll still be learning from Dom's content, it will be acquired with ease from delegates. - Chris Johnson (PMI)
I’ve worked with Dom on numerous occasions on events such as SAScon and The UK Search Conference. He always delivers informative, engaging and entertaining presentations. We’ve consistently received excellent brilliant delegate feedback from his sessions, he’s a great addition to any line up and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him – Nicky Wake, MD, Don’t Panic Events
