Graham Goodkind

Founder & Chairman of Frank / Dutch Uncle / active investor in early stage companies

Biography

A PR guy at heart, Graham is the founder and Chairman of leading consumer public relations agency Frank. Having won just about every industry award there is, Graham has been behind many of the most creative and engaging campaigns in the business. Having “gone plural” he now combines this role with several other roles and appointments. As a Board Advisor to Green Square, a corporate finance advisor specialising in the media and communications sector, he works on the challenges and issues agencies face as they seek to grow and maximise the value of their businesses and ultimately seek a sale, merger or acquisition. As Chairman of Noise Media Group, he works closely with the business to help grow and monetise its network of influencer channels that it then provides native content to. Graham is also on the board of iAu (a digital marketing agency specialising in travel), Camden Town Unlimited (a business improvement district ) and Shift Ventures (a charitable foundation that builds businesses to help social problems). In addition, Graham is the world’s first Dutch Uncle, a new type of business consultant who has a slightly more challenging, provocative and cajoling method to elicit optimum performance.
