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.
