Speaker Profile

About Dave Trott

Dave's passion for creativity and advertising started in the '70s when he worked for John Webster at BMP, who has won more advertising awards than anyone else in history. He worked his way to Deputy Creative Director, then left in 1980 to start his own agency, Gold Greenlees Trott. 

His time at BMP certainly stood him in good stead when Gold Greenlees Trott won Best Agency in the UK by Campaign magazine in their first year, followed four years later by Best Agency in the World by Ad Age magazine, New York.
