Gill named as top STEM influencer

UK: Institute of Refrigeration president Stephen Gill has been named as one of the world’s top STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) influencers.

Steve Gill’s name appears on the list compiled by Onalytica, an information technology services firm that offers influencer relationship management and predictive analytics software.

Onalytica analysed nearly 2.4 million posts on STEM over the last 12 months, looking at social influence as well as authority by analysing how much influencers are referenced on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Forums, Blogs, News and Tumblr content. These influencers were then identified and uploaded to Onalytica’s Influencer Relationship Management software to generate the influencer rankings and network map.

Steve was named as one of the influencers in the Top Industry Professionals category which gathered experts from some of the world’s most renowned brands and organisations including Microsoft, Amazon and the British Council.

Commenting on his addition to the STEM top influencers’ list, Stephen Gill said “This reflects positively on the impact of the work of the IoR to raise the profile of refrigeration’s contribution to society and as an excellent career choice.”
