Nothing great was ever achieved without passion, collaboration, tenacity and a lot of hard work. Pip is the Founder of The Dots, best described as ‘LinkedIn for the creative industries’. An entrepreneur with a distinctive marmite laugh (you either love it or you hate it) Pip is a native Brit who has spent the last 13 years immersed in the creative industries, including executive roles at MTV Australia and New Zealand. Named as one of Australia's top female entrepreneurs, Pip has had an extraordinary start-up journey from quitting her dream job at MTV, sinking her life savings into co-founding her first venture in Australia - which she quickly grew into the leading professional networking platform for creatives in the region - to exit and then launching a further improved offering here in the UK. The Dots launched in the UK late last year and has already attracted the UK's leading companies who have joined the site to promote their brand, attract clients and hire talent - some of which are BBC, Vice, Spotify, TATE, Net-a-Porter, Facebook, Wolff Olins, Pentagram, Universal Music, Twitter, United Visual Artists, AKQA, Condé Nast, Twitter, V&A, W+K, Guardian and many more. Pip is on a mission to connect 1 million creatives and freelancers to commercial opportunities by 2018, helping build a stronger, more profitable and diverse creative sector. Pip lives on a houseboat with her husband in Kings Cross, London.Locked Pro Plan feature
