Bespoke support for you and your team

I create a safe space for you and your team to think deeply about the issues that matter to you, to have critical conversations with your colleagues about your future direction, and  expand on your thoughts, ideas and opportunities with others.

Experimentation and innovation

I’ve designed and launched cultural academies focused on experimentation and innovation such as the Digital Marketing Academy, which works with senior marketers and leaders to devise innovative digital approaches to reach and engage audiences and the Audience Diversity Academy which works with senior marketing, learning, curatorial and programming professionals to devise experiments to reach new communities.
