After a successful spell at top ten ad agency TBWA, working on disruptive brand strategies for clients like PlayStation and Nike, at the age of 24, Nick Jankel decided to set up on his own.
He founded a pioneering innovation consultancy, which has seen him work on numerous global launches including Xbox, Unilever's 7 year future of laundry, the BBC's most successful TV show of all time (Dancing with the Stars) and sustainable cities for the UK government. Over the years he built expertise in culture change, setting up innovation programmes for Cadburys and Oxfam; and leadership development, coaching the top 100 at Intel.
Through his work helping organisations and leaders switch on, and his own life-changing breakthroughs, Nick came to fully appreciate the power that new ways of thinking can have on teams and the businesses they work for. The resulting framework he has developed, Breakthrough Biodynamics, can be applied to any area of human endeavour, whether to create billion-dollar innovations, change company cultures or ensure that individuals thrive in challenging circumstances.
This has led Nick to advise a vast array of corporate bodies and leading institutions including Tech City, The Cabinet Office and No.10 Downing Street; be invited to speak at thought leaders like Yale and Aspen Ideas Institute; and appear on BBC and MTV as an expert.
