Heavyweight agency growth accelerator

As a heavyweight agency chairman and specialist growth accelerator, I work with founders and leadership teams to double or triple revenue, or exit at a premium. During the first part of my career I founded, grew and sold six companies of my own, became CEO of a multi-discipline group, and chaired some of the industry’s most successful agencies.

I work with owners to scale up fast, identifying the correct actions required to accelerate growth and holding their leadership team’s feet to the flames as they achieve it. I also run workshops to define exceptional agency propositions and positioning, and work with clients to plan and implement intensive growth accelerator programmes.

The agency acceleration programme results in stellar positioning – and triples agency revenue

The Strategy/Execution Map formula (podcast, transcript) cuts through the clutter, combining clear agency positioning, structural integrity, superb management and senior team alignment to achieve exceptional growth. The process creates the framework for scalability, builds team coherence, and sets the stage for leadership succession.

Over thirty leading agencies in the UK and USA have used this structured framework, and the results are exceptional:

  • Following the development of new positioning – “We make tired brands famous again” – Impero doubled its revenue in two years. In 2018 Impero won five agency of the year awards, including The Drum’s Agency of the Year
  • With a new proposition, “The creative agency for entrepreneurs”, Alpha Century grew from a seven-person advertising agency to £35m billings in eighteen months
  • Over two years MomentumABM went from £1.8 million revenue to £6 million (with £1m EBIT) and launched in the USA, winning $1 million of new business in its first year.
