About me

 

I'm founder of H Bureau, a global collective of high-calibre experts, founded specifically to help creative companies to grow, evolve and innovate. You could think of us as an agile and turbo-charged version of a management consultancy, built for the needs of modern creative entrepreneurs. I have been working at the intersection of entertainment, business and technology for over a decade, founding my first company aged 22. My primary focus is on operations, business analysis and product management for exciting early-stage and rapid-growth b2c and creative companies, plus connecting talent with technology and business opportunities. I'm always curious about the inner workings behind the scenes in all sorts of sectors and disciplines. My background also includes managing the touring careers of DJs and bands playing shows in over 60 countries, devising strategies and sales tools for eBay powersellers, building knowledge sharing systems at a Ministry of Defence technology lab, and mentoring with the IntoUniversity charity to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their goals.

May 2016
  • H Bureau is a global collective of high-calibre experts, founded specifically to help creative companies to grow, evolve and innovate. We know that creative companies and entrepreneurs can face tough challenges around launching new initiatives, developing talent, scaling operations and balancing creativity and commerce. Having founded, built and sold our own creative businesses, we’ve experienced many of these challenges first-hand. We felt that existing solutions didn’t serve people like us well enough, so we’ve made it our mission to build an agile and dynamic consultancy to be the trusted business partner for the world’s most exciting creative companies. We provide innovative solutions to complex business challenges and help empower the next generation of creative business leaders. We do this through our expertise in strategy, operations and talent development, built up over time working with some of the world’s most disruptive startups, prominent brands, and trailblazing creatives. H Bureau operate across the spectrum of creative industries, with a particular focus on live entertainment, media & advertising, hospitality and technology.
