Connor Gurney

Welcome to! It is, as you might guess from the name, the online home of your host, Connor Gurney.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of Gurste where we build software that helps organisations to share information before, during and after emergencies. The idea came about following my volunteering in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire when I managed technical matters for the first website for survivors.

Whilst I seem to have less free time than ever nowadays, I spend what free time I do have trying to keep BlackBerry® smartphones (remember those?!) working, cycling along the UK’s coastline or cooking as authentic a butter chicken as I know how to.

I can be contacted by sending email to I receive several hundred emails a day so I’d be grateful if you would please include a descriptive subject line to help me to prioritise your email accordingly.
