I have been involved as a founder, executive and operational leader in consumer and media industries for over 25 years. In 1997, along with my brother, we revolutionised the trends information business with the launch of Worth Global Style Network (WGSN), which went on to become "the fashion industry bible" (The Wall Street Journal), providing trend forecasting, market research and data for retailers, manufacturers and designers. My roles at the business were wide-ranging, and included responsibility for product development, operational strategy, and sales and marketing. In October 2005, the business was sold to Emap. I have since been involved in several start-up businesses as a minority shareholder. I returned to work full time in late 2009 when I founded Stylus Media Group (Stylus.com), an inspiration service for all consumer and creative businesses. Today, I remain Chairman and CEO of Stylus, working hard to ensure that our content helps our clients create their next big ideas.
