Trainer and Consultant, Self-employed

Paul's professional bio / interests

I spent a long career working in agencies - 13 years at Ogilvy, 4 years at FCB San Francisco and 14 years at VCCP, working with a wide range of different clients including Levi's, P&G, Nestle, GSK, Diageo, Dept of Health, FedEx and Jordans Cereals. I left the agency world behind in 2017 and now offer training and consultancy. I'm a non exec for fast-growing content agency.

I’d like help with…

Finding non-exec opportunities to help agencies develop and grow their business and develop their culture. I also offer a half day workshop on 'Building strong client relationships,' which I run for the IPA.

An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…

I also offer training for companies and individuals in managing pressure and stress. It's all rooted in science, evidence-based and not at all touchy-feely or 'woo'! I run it with over 30 companies including Ford and Adobe and a number of agencies.

A career highlight

I founded and ran a specialist healthcare agency within VCCP and grew it to a 40-strong company. I'd never worked in healthcare but saw an opportunity to bring greater strategic rigour and creativity to that sector.
