Graham Allcott is the founder of Think Productive, the UK's leading provider of personal productivity training and consultancy. Graham's transition from charity chief executive to freelance consultant inspired him to set up Think Productive.
Realising he would have to manage without a PA and his great team of ‘do-ers', Graham began reading about personal workflow and productivity tools, developing his own ways of ensuring maximum productivity.
With a mission to revolutionise stuffy time management courses, Think Productive launched in April 2009 and has earned rave reviews from the likes of British Airways, The Cabinet Office, Blackberry, eBay, University College London and Barclays Commercial Bank for its practical, ‘at-desk coaching' approach.
Away from productivity, Graham's background and other big passion is for the charity sector. A keen social entrepreneur, he is the founder of Fruitful Consulting, a social enterprise consultancy and Intervol, an international student volunteering charity. Previous roles include Chief Executive of Student Volunteering England and Head of Volunteering at the University of Birmingham and as an advisor to UK Governments red and blue on youth engagement policy.
He was the founding Chairman of READ International, an award-winning charity recycling English curriculum textbooks by sending them to Tanzanian schools, and is a trustee of the youth homelessness charity Centrepoint.
