Aiden Carroll F IDM

Aiden Carroll started out his career intending to be called to the Bar, but fell in love with media along the way.

From early forays into public relations and television, Aiden became an award-winning brand strategist. He believes that brands live and die on their presence and has convinced some very recognisable clients and agencies that this is the case, including Google, Barclays, WPP and Hilary Clinton.

Aiden’s fruitful and periodically globe-trotting career has seen him work with numerous brands in shaping and delivering their digital and advertising strategies.

His work appears in multiple publications from The Independent to The San Francisco Chronicle and he talks and trains constantly, mainly in London & Hong Kong, making a habit of saying yes to interesting opportunities.
