Faces behind the names.

Creative / inspirer & founding father

Rich’s credentials are impressive – he’s worked with brands like Gucci, Bentley and Bacardi to bring senior teams together and leave an event understanding what needs to change … what has to be done to deliver against challenging business goals. Rich's infectious energy and endless passion for this industry keeps us ahead of the game, always pushing the boundaries, whether it comes to technology or creative execution. His focus is in creating outcome driven events that make a difference.

King of engagement & founding father

Nick has spent time on both sides of the client agency relationship, so he understands better than most the challenges facing our clients in sharing key messages with their teams. Nick led on an event that brought £35m into a business in the subsequent 12 months and has supported senior leadership teams in global brands like Guinness and Bombay Sapphire to achieve stretching business targets. For Nick – it’s all about helping leaders communicate better and so deliver against their bottom line.

The people person

Sue headed up her own live event and communication agency for 20 years before joining Top Banana, working with iconic brands such as Transport for London, Diageo and Barclaycard. Sue brings her very human touch to everything she does and quickly manages to identify a client’s DNA.

The firecracker

With a talent for getting straight to the point and getting things done, Jade is creative in her thinking, authentic in all her dealings and always stepping up to take responsibility for everything she does. Clients such as Bentley, Hospira and Primark love her energy and her unfailing ability to challenge their thinking and deliver ever more effective events.

The driven perfectionist

The ambassador for operational excellence, Jill keeps everyone in line. Her work with the likes of Wilkinson, Danone and Bombay Sapphire never fails to elicit positive feedback for her attention to detail and desire to do things right.

Aside from our directors and head coaches, we have an in house pool of 40 talented team members across two locations, all working together to create exceptional events and communications. From backstage to front of house, we hugely value the roles of our entire team, aligning our systems and processes with our creative excellence in production.
