OUR PEOPLE

In a world that’s ever more technical, digital and automated, we help our clients cut through and engage in simple, human terms. Because it may be called business to business, but it’s still people that do the buying. So here's a few of ours...

Founder

Jeannette Pritchard MBE

Award-winning entrepreneur, author and passionate campaigner for the social and environmental impact of work, enterprise culture and community, JP launched the agency back in 1998.

She was awarded an MBE for her contribution to business and entrepreneurship in 2018, and continues to this day to champion female founders, remaining a passionate supporter of women in business. In 2009 she co-founded UGLI Creative Campus for fledgling young businesses, and in 2010 launched Brand Amplifier, a trailblazing charity that has mentored countless entrepreneurs via free scholarships. In her spare time, JP enjoys being out in nature, is a keen ceramicist and artist, and loves water skiing.
