I am the founder of Evergreen Growth & Marketing and here are a few things I love to do:
Work out how to fix and improve things
Break down massive complicated problems and projects into simple, manageable steps
Understand what influences and motivates people's decisions
These passions meant I worked my way up to Head of Operations at a successful, global sports marketing agency by the age of 25.
After joining in 2015, the business grew from a group of 8 above a shop in Soho, to an award-winning agency with offices in London, Hong Kong and Beijing, employing 30+ staff.
My impact and drive for solving problems and achieving growth ensured sales and revenue dramatically increased year on year.
Orchestrating international marketing campaigns and creating partnerships between the biggest brands, Premier League clubs and superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Joshua was what I thought I always wanted to do in my career.

Bored of boardroom meetings and bullshit buzzwords, I knew I had to get out of an environment where people were too afraid to ask questions and admit when they were wrong.
In most marketing jobs people are working long hours with teams that are resistant to changing and moving quickly, while having a large amount of pressure and stress placed upon them, without giving any real value to people in the real world.
There had to be a way of earning income, that involved what I love doing and used my knack of sorting shit out and 'hacking' my way to success.
But could I find this without the needless corporate bullshit that is surrounding marketing in the modern world?
Where could I apply what I'm good at and enjoy, in a way that actually meant something and delivered REAL VALUE to REAL PEOPLE!
What I was searching for...
The Entrepreneur's Sweetspot
adapted from Daniel Priestley: The Entrepreneur's Revolution
Living in South West London for 5 years I've been surrounded by independent, cool, exciting businesses that had great products and services but weren’t shouting about it enough and not reaching that next level of growth.
I couldn’t understand why they weren’t making a big deal about how great they are and concentrating on making every experience for their customers exciting and painless.
Then it hit me...
What if they simply didn't know how?
It is a fact that 50% of businesses globally are lacking essential digital skills required to grow.
But 22% of small businesses thought advice from 'expert' consultants was too complicated and confusing.
I created Evergreen to provide bullshit-free advice and consultancy.
Evergreen is here to train and coach everyday entrepreneurs and small business the skills and principles to grow and attract more customers.
I am committed to discovering and sharing new methods of blending technology, creativity, and the right people, to help grow small businesses.
Small businesses are the backbone of the economy, (an amazing 81% of the overall workforce in the UK are employed by small businesses).
Everyone loves an underdog and I know Evergreen can have a big impact on local communities around the world, making sure all you everyday entrepreneurs reach your potential and punch above your weight!
