Paul is managing director of Agent, a full service, integrated marketing agency. In 2016, the firm was featured by BBC1’s The One Show for its trial of, and subsequent evolution of, Sweden’s six hour working day practices. The company’s values-led approach to business sustainability has also been illuminated with Paul having won The Guardian’s Sustainable Business Leader of the Year, 2016. In 2014, Agent launched its sister social enterprise, Agent Academy CIC, a not-for-profit company designed to support the next generation of young people into the creative and digital industries. Paul is also a board member of Liverpool Local Enterprise Partnership’s Digital and Creative board, a trustee of Rare Trust, a performing arts charity for young people and a trustee of The Big Trust, a new charity dedicated to increasing the life chances of those furthest away from education and meaningful employment.
