About me
I'm Olly Rzysko. I've spent over 20 years working in the fast paced world of fashion, retail & start-ups. I work as a Chief Marketing Officer or Marketing Director and have extensive experience in social media, performance marketing, strategic communications and branding. I've enjoyed time at Primark, Haeckels, mahabis, CoolPlanet as well as co-founding Ecologi and founding Good Candles. I'm obsessed with the people we often call customers, how they act and what creates an action and in the last five years have focused on climate change solutions and projects. I work with a number of well known global organisations and start ups and I mentor those entering the industry for the first time. I’m a father of two, a proud husband and a seaside resident.
