About me

Hello. I'm Howard. I'm founder of H Bureau, a business partner to growth creative companies and entrepreneurs. We're based in London and New York. I have 10 years’ experience as an entrepreneur & talent agent in the entertainment industry; building two of my own companies before being acquired by Europe’s largest independent live music agency. For the past 2 years I've has been working with a number of creative, technology & media startups as well as designing and facilitating innovation workshops for senior execs at companies such as Visa, McKinsey, Philips, Hearst and Ikea. 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 promoting raves in the forests of South-East England. If you have a project or venture you're building and want to chat, drop me a line.
