Sometimes, it’s all about me
So I walked in a Bar one day and thought “ How do I show people what I Do Differently?”
Well, it's about being talked about and challenging conventional thinking. And getting things done.
It's about being a CreActivist® and Doing it Differently!
But many years, and many bars ago I was an Ad Man – a Mad Man of the ‘80s and ‘90s
Working on some great brands like Tia Maria, Dunhill, Barratt Homes, Scottish and Newcastle Breweries, British Gas, Carrefour, Procter & Gamble the RHM brand groups of Paxo, Bisto and Saxa.
And of course my baby of them all Gillette, with my very own slogan, “The Best a Man can Get”.

Great days when lunches lasted for Days!
Life moved on and I ran successful Ad Agencies. Invested in businesses, sold out and re invested. Got the feel of “running a business” – it literally is the coal face and it’s hard.
Here is where my marketing approach shifted – real results matter – no bullshit waffle.
Good marketing is hard to come by – and businesses need more, so I started
Doing it Differently!
I sell ideas.
And here is the business;
I'm not in the business of fighting over scraps with the masses.
I'm in the business of absolute and total domination with BIG IDEAS that work.
And if you're in this with me, then that's the business you're in too.
New Ideas for your business start by Doing it Differently!
Once you start Doing it Differently, it's easy for doubt to set in.
Because Doing it Differently causes change, and change is scary.
The alternative is to acknowledge and embrace the idea of Doing it Differently and be clear about the changes you seek to make.
Because without these changes...and more, you stay where you are.
Hey, I’m not for everyone but this is Marketing from a real Marketer who knows his stuff.
