Together we crack creative brand marketing conundrums with media agnostic ideas, we supercharge leadership culture, we deliver live, hybrid and virtual experiences, we produce brand films / animations and we develop brand strategy. I'm also a new biz community leader with The BD100 Awards, Winning Together annual conference and 24/7 agency training academy Tanba in my Co-founder locker. πŸ‘Š

A career highlight

Launching The McHardy Collective and Co-founding The BD100 with The Drum as media partner to shine a light on a profession which has been my life since 1997 and which deserved more recognition. And of course the launch of Tanba (The Agency New Business Academy) with Katie Street and Jody Osman is VERY VERY exciting!! πŸ˜€
