My name is Paul Wilkinson and I live in Blackheath, London.

I started editing Wikipedia in October 2003 (I have an English Wikipedia user page).

Wikimedia UK activity[edit | edit source]

I was formally accepted as a member of Wikimedia UK in February 2011.

  • As a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations I helped develop, with Wikimedia UK, the CIPR's first guidance notes (published June 2012), then an update published in 2014 (in guiding PR people in their use of Wikipedia, I stress I am first and foremost a Wikipedian).
  • In April 2012 I arranged for a volunteer (Andy Mabbett) to facilitate a workshop at the Institution of Civil Engineers, followed by a GLAM Editathon at the ICE in July 2013.
  • I was a volunteer at a Women in Architecture editathon at the Architectural Association in London in October 2015.
  • In June 2016, at the request of Wikimedia UK, I gave a talk to staff at a London-based marketing/PR agency outlining key principles of Wikipedia.
  • In July 2016, I attended a Wikimedia UK 'Training for Trainers' weekend - as a result....

I am an Accredited Wikimedia UK trainer. My accreditations are:

  • Institutions (Full).
  • Members (Full).

If you would like me to run or attend a training event, please feel free to contact me using the information on this page.
