Mark Scantlebury – Co-Founder

What do you do?

I talk to new clients, find out what matters to them, and work out how we can help. Then I bring the right people together – get them excited, and make sure they’re keen to do well.

Why do you do it?

I love the rollercoaster of building a business. There’s nothing better for me than winning a client’s trust, delivering excellent work, and being appreciated for it. I particularly enjoy unpicking a client’s conundrum, or coming at their problem with a fresh perspective, knowing that we can make a difference.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

I cook for and tidy up after my three live-at-home-children (this won’t last for ever so I’m making the most of it). I escape on my bicycle as often as I can, and explore junk markets with my wife.

What are life’s simple pleasures?

Cheering in a crowd. Diving into cool clear water on a hot day. Learning a new thing. Singing my heart out round a piano with people I love. Small acts of kindness between strangers.
