About | The Team

Kerry Watkins

Founder, Trainer & Consultant


I launched Social Brighton with the mission of helping businesses learn to manage social media successfully in-house. I design and deliver tailored social media training solutions for clients and run the Strategy, Content, Facebook Ads & LinkedIn training courses.

I work with a number of clients throughout the UK, Europe & the developing world and I’m passionate about how social networking can benefit organisations of all sizes in unique ways.

I live in Hove with my husband and daughter and still enjoy the hospitality industry,  in which I spent over 20 years working in senior management, marketing, training and operations. … just from the other side of the bar.

In my spare time, I love cooking, especially baking, sketching, playing the piano, family camping holidays and city breaks.





1.Favourite book/film.

I’m a bit of a film addict so it’s really hard to choose! But I’d I guess I’d say Withnail & I is up there at the top. I watched it so much as a teenager I think I could recite the script! So many great quotes in that film…

2. Favourite quote

“I have some extremely distressing news. We’ve just run out of wine.”

– Richard E Grant in Withnail and I

3. Weakness.

The Asos app, wine and freshly baked white bread with butter and salt

4. Celebrity crush.

As a teenager, it was Morten Harket from A-ha. These days it’s got to be Tom Hardy.

5. What do you wish you knew more about?

Tom Hardy.
