“Your time is the most valuable investment you’ll make.”

Damon’s 27 year service in advertising inspired him to start his own company called Joint. He shares some pearls of wisdom to those who are interested in entrepreneurship by discussing the basic principles of a successful start up.

Damon has spent the last 26 years working at some of the UK’s best creative agencies. In 2008 he joined RKCR/Y&R as Executive Creative Director to partner its CEO Richard Exon.

Under his tenure the agency became the most awarded in the UK, winning its first D&AD pencils, and claiming the country’s number one spot in the Gunn repost, as well as reaching number one in Campaign’s ‘New Business League’.

In 2012, he co-founded a creative buisness named Joint. A career highlight includes being placed on the Ad Age’s ‘Creativity 50’ list, as one of the worlds most influential and inspiring creative personalities.

He is also the only person in advertising to ever win two BAFTAs.
