He was previously the CEO and Founder of Little Giant, NZ’s leading design and innovation agency. Dentsu Aegis Network acquired little Giant in 2017. Dentsu Aegis Network is one of the world’s largest communication companies with 35,000 people across 145 countries.

p.s this event was intended to be run in October but had to be rescheduled due to the city disruption caused by the Sky City Fire. If you registered for the previous event your ticket is still valid so no need to purchase a ticket again. Any questions let me know on – sorry for any inconvenience.
