Dominic Search

The Generalist – Finance and Technical Director

Dominic is an events producer, project manager, business administrator, and technical consultant with a background in social enterprises.  He has studied Business Information Systems, Strategic Management, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

He has been Technical Director at Poptel, a specialist ISP during the first dotcom boom; IT Manager for Marie Stopes International, a large reproductive healthcare charity; and an IT & management consultant to SMEs & NGOs as well as the public sector.

He co-created the “dot coop” top-level Internet domain, and the first (solar powered) cyber cafe at Glastonbury Festival in 1995.  He designed and project managed a large WiFi network for a national heritage site on the private island of Lambay.  He co-authored a book about not-for-profits use of the Internet; and a business plan for a million pound community waste reuse scheme in partnership with The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

Dominic was co-organiser of Kingston Green Fair, the UK’s best known one-day family event focused on environmental sustainability; he co-managed The Synergy Project, the UK’s largest regular counter-cultural clubbing event & successor to The Warp Experience; he co-launched a sustainability campaign in partnership with the Club of Budapest; and he has organised blockchain business conferences for Mattereum, perhaps the world’s weirdest and most daring startup.

He was an official event photographer for The Synergy Project, Big Green Gathering, Glade Music Festival and The Southwark Mysteries (the play by John Constable in which he also had a minor acting role).

He was also one threads that accidentally inspired Daisy Campbell to adapt Cosmic Trigger, and has been with The Mycelium from the beginning.
