I can work alongside you and your team to help deliver successful brand or advertising outcomes . I can bring to any situation my personal and unique combination of practical experience, brand and advertising theory, and perspectives on organizational behaviour and change developed through studying at Bath University Business School, Ashridge (Hult Business School), and the Metanoia Institute.
Here is one example of how I worked with a charity to facilitate a major rebranding project.
I have given speeches and keynote addresses at many events over several decades, including conferences of the MRS, AA, IAB, APG, TEDx, and other public and private events from Tallinn to Buenos Aires. Please get in touch to discuss my availability and fees, where appropriate.
You can see here my TEDx talk ‘Aesthetics, Jugs and Rock and Roll’.
For many years I led training programmes for DDB Worldwide and for the IPA. Training interventions can range from a simple lecture to much more interactive workshops and extended programmes. My training approach combines action and reflection with theory, leading to real behavioural change.
Coaching can provide a safe space in which to explore hidden assumptions and notice and experiment with patterns of behaviour that may be getting in the way of what you want to achieve. It is especially valuable for leaders in today’s volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous environment.
I am interested in working with coaching clients both in and outside the fields of advertising and marketing.
I will consider commissions to write articles or chapters about my fields of expertise. I have for example contributed chapters to the Sage Handbook of Advertising, The Economist Book of Brands and Branding, and most recently the section on ‘How Advertising Works’ for the Advertising Association’s publication Advertising’s Big Questions.
