A quick glance reveals a keen eye for social media and a love for his native Oldham...

Google results

Taylor's Google search reveals a selection of interesting Team Spirit-related content. However, it is a news story from outside the events industry that impressed C&IT the most: when he won Oldham Business Man of the Year in March 2014. Excellent effort, Ian!

LinkedIn

Taylor's LinkedIn profile details the amazing story behind Team Spirit, which he founded in 1993, with help from a loan from the Prince's Trust. More than 22 years later, the teambuilding agency is a well-known player in the events industry and features in C&IT's Top 50 UK Agency table.

Twitter

The prolific, Twitter-happy @ianteamspirit has an online legion of more than 1,500 followers and, since joining the social media site in 2010, has racked up approximately 12,500 tweets. As well as sharing constant updates on what fun shenanigans the Team Spirit crew are up to, Taylor is a loyal follower of C&IT and we can always count on a retweet or 140-character soundbite!

Final word

Taylor won big again at this year's Oldham Business Awards, when Team Spirit came home with the Supporting Young People Award.
