A copywriter, advertising creative director, author, marketing and business consultant.
G (his first name is just G – he blames his pommy parents) has worked for some of the UK’s leading international advertising agencies as a senior writer, creative director and board director before starting is own advertising agency (FGH) in London. There probably isn’t a business sector that he hasn’t worked on in his 30 year creative career to-date. Prior to moving to Australia in 1996 he was commissioned by Penguin to write a series of children’s books, and he now occasionally writes and publishes fundraising cookbooks and his own brand of The Good Thing About humour. He was once a trainee Tibetan monk during his travels in India and has worked in America as an actor in the Rocky Horror Show, He was also the UK’s youngest ever AIB (Associate Institute of Bankers). Since arriving down-under he has maintained his professional contact with the marketing world through his own successful advertising agency in Sydney (BSH) which he sold in 2004. He has also worked on the “other side” as a marketing director for a number of companies, established an events company, a travel tour company and now also advises growth strategies to companies from a marketing, sales and advertising perspective through his own marketing collective companies: The Good Thing About… www.tgta.com.au and his web strategy, and web content and development entity Mighty Media Marketing www.mightymeida.com.au
His first love (in work) still remains thinking in his hammock, writing and devising marketing communication strategies and bringing those strategies to a reality with a team of like-minded professionals. But he would rather be spending time with his darling, his children (sadly infrequent visitors) and his garden at the back of his shack by the ocean.
