Rating Room Ltd

Gary Kirk is a co-founder and Technical Director of Rating Room Ltd, a UK 'Local Search' company that works with companies such as Yell, Thomson Local and Microsoft. Gary has followed the local search market for a decade, four years of which have been spent growing Rating Room to the point where 30% of UK Internet users now use their independent directory. He is keen to share the lessons learned along the way to help local businesses compete online.

Gary is one of the moderators of the local search forum at WebmasterWorld, loves to travel, has no musical talent - much to his disgust given his enjoyment of music, loves all food apart from fish and is a self-confessed workaholic.
