Simon Thurston

Meet  Simon: 


No two founders or agencies are the same. Wherever you are in your journey, whatever your challenges & vision, you receive tailored expertise & support.

My team and I are known as indispensable allies for founders of ambitious, independent agencies and businesses in the creative, marketing, digital & tech space.

An on-demand, executive team with 175+ years’ experience, we're here to help you through each transition to prepare for and tackle what lies ahead. Naturally, there’s no ‘one size-fits-all’ approach.

We’ve launched, built, scaled & successfully exited companies. We also understand the journey ahead is challenging.

Part of what we help agency founders with:

  • Seeing things differently and discovering new opportunities
  • Turning decisions into actions that deliver results by being accountable 
  • Aiming higher and committing to developing skills and capabilities 
  • Rediscovering the passion they had when first launching their agency 
  • Solving their most pressing pain points

Personally, I’ve spent 27 years (and counting) in marketing in the trifecta of in-house, agency- and client-side.

Have been privileged to work on 2 continents with 200+ clients across 35+ sectors. Am the author of 2 books – the second one is definitely a better body of work than the first.

My Services

Are you looking to realise growth ambitions, scale sustainably & successfully navigate an ever-evolving business landscape?

You may have specific revenue targets? Want to explore new markets or be less involved ‘in the weeds’ of the business? Or perhaps are considering your succession options? 

Your time is valuable, so we align with you from the first conversation & move at your speed. When exceptional people work together, the extraordinary can occur. 

Frank discussions are welcomed in an environment where diverse perspectives & independent thinking is encouraged. Working closely & proactively with you, we can be involved as much or as little as needed. 




We had been struggling to express our proposition. I believe we now have a better understanding of ICPs, the outcomes we help our clients achieve and our point of view.”
