aka Digital Wayfinder · Bitcoin Preacher · Cultural Animator · Siosi · Quetzalcóatl
George Siosi Samuels is a man of many names, cultures and talents. Now working as a Fractional Chief Community Officer — with over 10+ years of experience in community management and emerging technologies — he has a reputation for 'getting stuff done', making teams more productive, and building transformative communities.
George began his career with aspirations to be a digital animator, but his first job led him to being a programmer. From there, his journey took him into sales, community management, marketing, operations, and finally entrepreneurship. These varied experiences equipped him with an unparalleled understanding of the journey from freelancer to startup to SME to enterprise.
Your Guide in the Digital Landscape
George's passion for community building and his ability to adopt new tools and technologies led him to identify a growing gap between the general population and emerging technologies. To bridge this gap, George became adept at quickly learning new tools, integrating them into teams, and then rolling them out organization-wide. As a result, he became known as the "Digital Wayfinder."
As a Digital Wayfinder, George uses digital technologies in conjunction with his intuitive abilities to navigate the path to success in business and life. He merges and improves upon his skills in communications, negotiations, executive buy-in, corporate governance, pitching, organizational development, advocacy, and change management.
Preserving Heritage, Building Futures
Throughout his career, George has been dedicated to preserving intangible cultural heritage in a way that empowers both current and future generations. This stems from his desire to bridge people and technology — as part of a prophecy foretold by his great grandfather — so not as many people get left behind. As a result, he has become a champion for team culture within organizations and builds communities around technology or brands.
George's unique approach led him to facilitate the first deal resulting in the Government of Tuvalu exploring the world's first national digital ledger and infrastructure project using a Proof-of-Work blockchain. He also won a global pitching competition (out of 80 startup worldwide) in front of billionaire Tim Draper, securing his first seed investment for his startup, Honā.
