The increasingly digital world can be a challenging place for brands and businesses. People have more choice, more control and more expectations. And less time, less patience and less trust than ever before. Enter Gareth Jones and “The Drawing Board.”

“Meaningful marketing is about creating value first rather than simply trying to extract value. It means potentially reframing how you connect with your customers. Selling the problems you solve rather than just the products. Meaningful marketing involves 3 key areas of focus. Brand Philosophy, Customer Experience and ROI (Return on Ideas.)”

Gareth has an impressive background with 17+ years experience as a strategist in media and marketing, working with global brands through to local start ups.
