Heard names Jon Besant as Events Director 

Heard is pleased to announce that Jon Besant has joined the Heard team as Events Director. 

Jon has over 25 years experience as a DJ, promoter, events organiser and Radio presenter, working with some of the biggest names in music. With bases in Dubai, Marbella and the UK, Jon creates and runs events for thousands of people every year.

“The last 12 months have seen amazing growth for Heard, and we’re building a fantastic community.” Said Heard’s founder, Paul Austin.  “We’ve got huge growth plans for 2019 and beyond, and Jon is the perfect person to help with those goals. He is incredibly well respected as both as a DJ and promoter and we’re really excited to have him onboard. His energy and passion will be invaluable for us and help us to write the next chapter in the Heard story”.

Unlike most traditional social media platforms that are designed to connect you with people you already know, Heard is about making new connections and seeing what’s going on around you from the people that are there with you. So whether you’re at a party or a festival, or have just landed in a new city and want real recommendations from real people so you don’t miss out, Heard is for you.

“I’m really excited to join the Heard team” said Jon. “It’s an amazing app, and it’s great to see a social network focused on bringing people together and making new friends. As a promoter and DJ it’s a fantastic way to reach more people and engage with my audiences, and as a user myself it’s great to make sure I never miss out on what’s going on around me, no matter where in the world I am”.

We’re putting on some amazing parties and events this year as we launch Heard in new cities all across Europe, bringing people together and show them exactly how we’re changing the way people use social media. With Jon at the helm, we know that they’ll be talked about long after the music has stopped.
