I’ve always had an eye for success, whether it’s commercial or otherwise. The prospect of building something new with the tree was too good to turn down – it’s a young, exciting organisation that’s ready to blossom.
I’ve spent many years as a professional marketeer and communicator, with a career stretching from Procter and Gamble, Arthur Guinness, through Grampian Holdings to be MD of Saatchi Direct in Edinburgh. Highlights include the building of an agency, taking turnover from £6m to £26m in just 3 years; and the creation of the National Neighbourhood Watch Association as part of General Accident’s (now Aviva) programme of Corporate Social Responsibility.
In 1995 I joined dbda, the CSR/Education agency, responsible for the long running campaigns and programmes with Zurich, BP, BMW, and Marks and Spencer, amongst others.
Be interesting and interested. That's what we ask of our staff.
The opportunity to build a team and service clients using your own ideas is exciting, isn’t it?
No one would mind me saying that this is a diverse and unique mix of individuals.

From my very first interview, I had a great feeling about the tree.
There’s a brilliant atmosphere here, and you can see that reflected in the quality of work.
A mind is like a parachute – it doesn't work if it's not open!
You have to be tech sharp in marketing. We're developing our own products which is great.
Why not try and have some fun with work, fancy a beer?
There is such a collaborative nature working here.
We're all born naked and the rest is drag.

As soon as you walk in there is a warm and welcoming atmosphere
I work across an incredibly diverse range of clients at the tree.
Every day has been authentic and exciting.
