    Jonathan Pease

    I've been in the communications game for the past 20 years and still get a real kick out of solving problems for my clients. 

    I'm passionate about big ideas and I love side projects as they help me keep my creative 'powder' dry. Over the years I've launched my own fashion brand into 13 countries, written and sold TV show formats and featured on several TV shows including Australia’s Next Top Model. 

    I have a Master of Business from Sydney University and enjoy the odd keynote speech. I recently spoke at Vivid, The Festival of Commercial Creativity, Mumbrella SAGE, The DeLux Forum and my own wedding.
