I help thoughtful creative people learn from and collaborate with each other to do world-changing work. For 20 years, I've worked in strategic marketing and social impact with big corporates and small startups, client-side and agency, with brands like IKEA, Lego, M&S, Unilever and Pearson. I've been an advisor to Prince Charles, too. I'm on the advisory board of tech startup Stuffstr, have served on D&AD Pencil juries, teach courses for Year Here, and mentor at Google and The Marketing Academy. Out of 600 nominees I was awarded a Marketing Academy scholarship in 2012, given to the UK's top 30 up-and-coming marketing leaders. My work won a Cannes Lion Award in 2013, an IPA Effectiveness Award in 2014, and the Marketing Society Grand Prix in 2015. I've written for The Economist, Quartz and Courier, and been written about in The Guardian, The Huffington Post, The Memo, Positive News and PSFK.
