Philip Stoten

Founding PartnerSCOOP


Member Since November 2021


Philip enjoys sharing his views on what’s new or disruptive in the industry he has spent a career of more than thirty years working in. First and foremost, Philip likes to write. He is equally happy moderating a debate or workshop or interviewing an executive on video. Since Philip was young, he wanted to be a journalist, but an aptitude for science, the technology boom in Cambridge and his poor performance in English at school, led him into manufacturing, where he worked in design, manufacturing, management and sales and marketing. “You can do anything you want”, was the inspiring advice given to Philip by his entrepreneurial father Paul, an approach that led Philip to start his own design company in Cambridge in his twenties. An approach that led him to switch from technology to journalism in his thirties, publishing his first magazine, going onto launch Printed Circuit News, EMSNow, InnovationsFORUM and Scoop. Philip founded Scoop to help companies in the electronics manufacturing industry to plan, produce, deploy and measure content, supporting their brand and their lead generation strategy. He is at his happiest working with clients, exploring their products and markets, and helping create solutions to show their thought leadership and bring their customers to their products. If Philip weren’t working in the electronics manufacturing space, he’d like to be writing about travel or food, two of his other passions. He enjoys the travel opportunities his role allows him. Of course, he takes his running shoes with him, keen to keep in shape or run the occasional marathon.
