Speaker Spotlight: Stephen Hey (HeyStephenHey)
Welcome back to Konsoll, Stephen Hey!
Stephen’s career spans 28 years of games PR, advertising, product marketing and latterly the role of Marketing Director at EA studio, Chillingo. Although Stephen loves games, he is terrible at them, but has a deep understanding of why people play games and what triggers people to buy them. He is lucky enough to have worked on some stand out games and franchises from Worms, Lego Star Wars, Resident Evil, Cut The Rope and Micro Machines to WWE, FIFA, PES and other acronym based classics.
In March 2017 Stephen set up games marketing consultancy HeyStephenHey, dedicated to helping indie developers formulate and execute marketing strategies. Since starting Stephen has worked with developers such as Milky Tea, Huey Games, Yippee Entertainment, Wargaming Ghost Broadband and Merge Games.
Stephen is a BAFTA and UKIE member and humbled to be an ambassador for the gamer’s charity, SpecialEffect.
