Ralph is an internationally recognised expert consultant on branding and experiential design and respected writer and speaker with over 20 years experience both client and agency side in the creative industries.
Today Ralph’s passion is for harnessing everything he’s learned from what he calls his “20 year apprenticeship” to now work with smaller and medium sized privately-owned UK businesses – both corporate and creative agencies – as an independent board-level instigator for change to help them deliver accelerated and coherent brand-led, design inspired transformation and growth across the total experience – inside and out – of their businesses.
In doing so Ralph works closely with each of his clients to bring to bear the full value of his highly pragmatic and personal fusion of management consulting, brand strategy, experience design and change management to deliver rapid improvement to the front-line and bottom-line of their businesses.
