Dan Canham

Recently working on a 12 month assignment in Korea with Samsung, Dan was responsible to bring new devices to market and driving demand, particularly from millennials. He was also responsible for managing media partnerships & media buying, creative development, campaign execution and innovation programs. 

In March 2016, Samsung had a 28.8 per cent market share, with Apple second on 23 per cent. Samsung maintains this new market positioning by consciously remaining in a state of "perpetual shake-up" and refusing to become complacent. As testament to this, in 2015, Samsung has been granted more US patents than any other company – including IBM, Google, Sony, Microsoft and Apple.

Dan founded MwM, a non-for-profit, purpose driven, online community encouraging men to tell their stories, connect and give advice to other men who have lost their mother. MwM is a personal passion project Dan founded after his mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer several years ago. 

Dan is a passionate Design Thinker with a proven ability to execute in complex environments and large organisations.
