About Connor Styche

Connor is the Managing Director of The Digital Lookout, a full-service marketing agency, dedicated to the construction industry.

There’s no denying he’s a geek at heart. Having smashed 13 GCSEs and 6 A-Levels by the age of 16, his dad wanted him to realise his potential of becoming an astronaut or a biochemist. Instead, he rebelled, and started on his career path into marketing. At the age of just 28, he already has over 10 years of experience behind him and his technical abilities have seen him develop apps, build many websites and write bespoke code for system integrations and software solutions.

Connor is currently working on developing a real-time cost management solution in response to a recognised demand in the construction industry. This will keep a track on labour, suppliers, professional services, POs, variations, assets and timesheets, allowing businesses to realise the true value of a project at any given time; it’s due to launch into market on a cost per licence basis in Q3 of 2024.

Connor sits on the steering committee of Kent’s branch of Constructing Excellence and is Vice Chair of G4C Kent, and most recently, has been appointed on the steering committee of the Kent Construction EXPO, helping to shape Kent’s largest construction event.

He’s also working with other industry professionals to further develop Southern Wellness Action Group; a not-for-profit organisation designed to help SME’s in the industry access trained mental health first aiders.
