Duane Holland

Cross-Discipline Creative Strategist :: Making brands Tomorrow Ready, Today

London, England

I’m a cross-discipline strategist with 18+ years uniquely blending Creative Consultancy, Communications, Experience and Innovation to shape the future of brands, businesses and society in the Connected Age. I help organisations explore, experiment and execute tomorrow's ideas today through strategic advisory, positioning & architecture, global marketing campaigns, innovation roadmaps, creative communication concepts and thought-leadership.

I was named twice in the BIMA 100 of UK digital influencers as ‘Agent for Change’ and ‘Strategy Consultant’ for my work in accelerating nascent digital technologies and behavioural science into creative concepts and experiences; assembling cross-discipline experts around complex challenges; and creating a dialogue between the creative industry and pioneering academics and ‘labs’.

// COMPANY
My mission is to make people, businesses and society ‘Tomorrow Ready, Today’. This is enabled through DH READY, a cross-discipline creative company I founded to help companies pivot into new and emerging spaces of cultural relevance.

// NETWORK
I work alongside an interdisciplinary network hardwired to world-class institutions, such as UCL, consisting of over 5,000+ researchers, ‘lab’ innovators and outliers including futurists, scientists, technologists, strategists and creatives.

// OUTREACH
I co-host an experimental supper club, called READY MEALS, based on the idea 'everyone has something to bring to the table’. We curate storytellers across science, business and creativity to share ideas around a specific theme, helping everyone to not only break from their own echo chambers, but inspire small change in their perspectives.

Say hello sometime. Hold Tight.
