Stephen Knight, ex-Advertising agency leader and one of the power players in the modern advertising industry runs a network of businesses all devoted to one thing: increasing the opportunities for people in the creative industries to network, swap stories, compare notes and generate new business.

Pimento sits at the centre of his businesses – a network of small but mighty agencies who are set up to take on the most complicated of briefs and compete against the modern monolithic agency groups.

Business development platform The Advertist – sponsor of Fuel – has just joined Pimento with a special offer for its members, so it seemed only fair to invite Stephen on and interrogate him about what we should expect.

True to form, he did not disappoint. Because access to the Pimento network opens up a galaxy of other benefits including travel discounts, racing (horses and cars), career advancement, executive coaching and lots lots more.

An hour of great anecdotes and advice from a true warrior of the creative world!

In this show, we discuss:

  • Career motivation
  • Diversity in the industry and creative solutions for change
  • How CEOs grow and bring their staff along
  • The future of Pimento
  • The art of winning new business
  • Mickey Mouse the motivator
  • Why they don’t write ’em like they used to!
