Between us, we’ve run TV production houses, ad agency creative departments, a research consultancy and a digital media company. Our experience ranges far outside the normal careers of consultants, enabling us to bring a broader perspective to problems. It also means that we have a black book to die for; if we can’t solve something ourselves, we are certain to know the best people who can.

Many of her show formats went global, running on channels from BBC and Disney to CNN and Sky, picking up numerous BAFTAs and other awards along the way.  She founded Rockabox Media (Now Scoota) in 2007, which quickly became the global leader in creative programmatic media distribution. Torie has also created two bestselling children’s books for charity, is a winner of Everywoman’s Technology Woman of the Year and is a Guinness World Record holder. She also knows just about everybody.
