It is rare to see left and right brain working at such an equally furious pace but with Janet, you get the both barrels. Janet’s creative empathy is easily matched by her commercial acumen, making her a great ally for both clients, agencies and production companies alike. She has the ability to see the bigger picture and yet still hone in on the finer details that are required to get things moving. She is a true change agent, fearless, full of energy, curious and ultimately focused on what matters – increasing the value of what we do.
Janet set up her consultancy practice in 2019 and focuses on improving commercial performance and driving business transformation and growth. She brings a wealth of knowledge from both a client and agency perspective into how creative communications businesses can achieve growth.
