He is a pitch coach to Adam & Eve DDB and McCann, two of the largest advertising agencies in the UK. His approach to communication coaching is very different. “Skills learnt from the world of stand up comedy and theatre mean fresh, natural and compelling communication…” says Jack. “…helping audiences understand complex stories.”
As director for the West End, film, and radio, Jack knows how to take often dry, technical information and render it clear and memorable, no matter who the audience. His experience of working with top comedians, theatre and Soap stars means he is also unlikely to be phased by stressed-out executives!
He has participated in over one hundred productions, both on stage and behind the scenes, with notable success in all fields, for The National Theatre, Channel 4 and ITV, amongst others. A production of his comedy, the Mummy toured in 2014 in several countries.
