Adam Graham,
Founder
Adam is a creative, commercially focused new business and marketing specialist, driven by a desire to help B2B businesses stand out and grow by building reputable brands. He has honed his craft over the last 15 years, having worked in new business consultancies and in-house for global giants, RAPP, Omnicom, Vizeum, Dentsu Aegis and Isobar. He’s experienced in brand building, marketing and sales pipeline development as well as running hundreds of successful multi-million pound pitches.
He believes strongly that business owners need to be braver and more honest to create authentic and differentiating brand stories, so that they can attract the right, long-term clients. This belief, coupled with a more scientific approach to new business, gives business owners the confidence and rigour they require to succeed.
