Guy Browning

The David Attenborough of the business jungle. Expert on creativity in business

Guy Browning | NMP Live

Guy Browning is the David Attenborough of the business jungle. He is the Daily Telegraph's Pocket Guru and the man behind The Guardian's Office Politics column. He also presents Guy Browning's Small Talk on Radio 4.

Guy is the founder of Smokehouse - an innovation consultancy which helps organisations brainstorm new products and services, new ways of working and new ideas for communication. Clients include HBOS and Unilever.

Formerly Creative Director of Added Value and before that a copywriter, Guy is an acknowledged expert on the use of creativity in business. He is also unquestionably one of the most engaging presenters and after dinner speakers on the circuit. In his workshops Guy demonstrates how to use basic intelligence, initiative and imagination to tackle core business issues. As a conference speaker he gets back to basics, cutting through the mass of clichés to sort out what really matters from what really, really doesn't.

Guy Browning has also written some of the funniest books in circulation, including:

"Double Your Salary, Bonk Your Boss, Go Home Early"

"You've got to learn to unleash the power of gratuitous flattery, and congratulate your boss on tasks that can be done by a small monkey"

"Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade". Jellyfish was the surprise Christmas hit of 2004.

"Being nice in business is like being nice on the roads. Everyone likes you but you don't get anywhere"

"Never Push When it Says Pull" will attempt to pull off the same success. Other projects in Guy's pipeline include a radio serialisation of his Weak at the Top column in Management Today.
