Northbank Launch.jpg

I founded literary, broadcast and speaking agency Northbank Talent Management in 2018 following a 20 year career as a publisher and then literary agent, launching Northbank Speakers in 2019 and Northbank Creators in 2021. I have an interest in domestic policy, currently serving as a non-executive director of the Westminster think tank Bright Blue, and an interest in arts policy to which I bring a pro-market approach. I serve on the advisory board of the Conservative Arts & Creative Industries Network, which exists to facilitate dialogue between creative industries practitioners and government; I served on the development board of the Ovalhouse Theatre, which commissions new work in response to today’s social and political issues, tasked with successfully raising £11m to move to its new home in Brixton in 2021; I'm currently a trustee of the Buxton International Festival, and I chair the development board of the acclaimed Finborough Theatre, described by Time Out as “Probably the most influential fringe theatre in the world.” 

I believe that work has the power to transform lives and as such am an ambassador for the ex-offender charity Tempus Novo, helping to increase the employment rate amongst former prisoners. I'm an advisor to The Entrepreneurs' Network, the UK's leading think tank in producing cutting-edge research into the best policies to support entrepreneurship.
