Graham brings blue chip business marketing rigour, discipline and experience to “green” projects, businesses and other organisations.

His experience of placing “the brand” at the heart of business strategies – and not just communications or marketing strategies – to achieve cultural change and improved performance, spans industries as diverse as publishing (he is a former senior commissioning editor with Harper Collins) the airline industry and power generation (Head of Brand for Rolls-Royce plc) and the many markets served by IMI plc around the world (Communications Director).

He first became aware of the world’s critical resource and energy issues through his geography degree and journalistic training with the National Geographic Magazine in Washington DC, where, amongst many other environmentally relevant articles, he helped to publish National Geographic’s first ever special edition – on energy - in 1980.  Since then Graham has changed the face and the culture of global corporations, re-defining the Rolls-Royce brand, for example, and taking responsibility for and embedding Corporate and Social Responsibility at IMI plc. As Communications and Investor Relations Director for this leading FTSE 250 business, he changed the company’s reputation with all key stakeholders around the world.

Graham recently completed a Permaculture Design Course. He is also trained as an Energy Resilience Assessor with the Transition Towns network, making him particularly capable and well-qualified to advise organisations and businesses on appropriate strategies as they face up to the implications of Peak Oil and Climate Change.

He is a keen walker and active in organisations that reflect his interests and passions, including the Soil Association, the Permaculture Association and the RSPB. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
