As the Head of Innovation, my job was to find new and better ways of solving client’s business problems. We did this by ensuring that we have a unique understanding of people’s changing needs and an ability to deliver innovative and game changing communications solutions. My job was to ensure that innovation was institutionalised across the business, that we were agile, we were at the forefront of technology understanding and we had the best talent around in the areas of digital, social and mobile.
