Max Whitby's details
- Max Whitby's presentations
Max Whitby is CEO and co-founder of Touch Press. He was involved in the BBC’s pioneering Interactive Television Unit and headed an early collaboration between the BBC and Apple. Subsequently he co-led a management buy-out of this BBC group, forming the MultiMedia Corporation (MMC) a London-based media publishing company that achieved a successful IPO in 1995. In 2004 Max made the radical decision to train formally as a scientist, and completed a PhD in chemistry at Imperial College in London. For the past decade he has collaborated closely with Theodore Gray designing and building elaborate periodic table displays and installations around the world. Their first iPad title—The Elements—resulted from this partnership and has become a digital publishing phenomenon. The Elements has been downloaded more than 800,000 times generating over $3 million of net revenue. The early success of this first richly enhanced interactive app book led to the formation of Touch Press. In 2011 Max co-produced the landmark literary iPad title The Waste Land exploring T S Eliot’s great poem and most recently he was executive producer on The Orchestra. He has received four BAFTA nominations and two BAFTA awards. He is passionately interested in natural history and has personally filmed every British bird, butterfly and bumblebee species and almost every dragonfly.
