Will spent his youth harbouring ambitions to become many things; a rugby player, an actor, a musician. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, be it ability or application, he was unable to make these goals a reality. (He says it was ability, by the way). Since joining the The Talent Business in 2009, Will has partnered the world’s leading creative businesses, helping them to identify and secure transformational senior creative talent. He now heads up The Talent Business’ European Creative & Design practice out of the Group’s London office. When not running the Creative & Design practice, you’ll find him bothering people about music, barbeques, and Arsenal FC.
