Andrew Missingham - Biography

Specialising in insightful provocations which lead to robust, co-created strategy, Andrew Missingham introduces powerful ideation techniques to a range of international businesses to ensure that ICT delivers social and cultural value, in addition to benefitting the bottom line.

Clients include Nike Inc, the Nike Foundation, the BBC, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Opera House, Sony Music, the British Council and Bacardi. Andrew started his career first as a musician and record producer, with credits including UNKLE, Urban Species, MC Solaar, Paul Oakenfold and Jocelyn Brown. As a result, his expertise is rooted in a deep knowledge of culture and cultural behaviour. Andrew has travelled to 53 countries around the world, and worked in 41 of them (16 in sub-Saharan Africa). Deeply entrepreneurial, Andrew's strategic insights are as likely to lead to the rationale for new product development, as campaigns for existing products and services. Of the eight companies he has started, his favourite is Soundslikeaphone.com - the world's first mobile ringtones business specialising in ringtones that sound like telephones, which he successfully exited in 2005.

Andrew brings to iHub a commitment to helping move the IT start-up ideation process to market-readiness through a sharp-eyed focus on the customer and rigorously testing innovative new business models.

Andrew is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a Fellow of the Clore Leadership Programme and a governer of London's Contemporary Dance Trust. He blogs "on a need-to-blog basis" at http://amissingham.com
