Combine great passion, with an immeasurable willingness to help people - and there you’ll find Mr Graeme Leighfield. Leading by example from the top, he is the epitome of what it means to be a member of team GEL.
From the start, he’s not been afraid to do things differently, if it means things are done the right way. A true visionary, he has built more than just a creative agency that produces award-winning work. It’s a place where our clients know they’re in safe hands. A place where people know the creative boundaries are going to be pushed. A place where we as a team, genuinely love to work and feel at home.
His passion doesn’t just stop at work though. He is a family man through and through, and when he’s not spending time with loved ones, you’ll find him declaring his un-dying love for the colour green or marvelling at Marvel. Whatever it is though, you can be sure he’ll give it his all.
The G to our GEL. The Iron Man to our Avengers... we love him 3000.
An insight to Graeme, by Carly.
Working in the e-learning team at Deutsche Telekom (2010 - 2012) in Bonn Germany. It opened my eyes, gave me confidence, expanded my horizons, and gave me the fundamental skills I needed to launch GEL Studios. However the best bits? Fantastic beer, amazing food, and awesome people.
Anyone who starts a conversation with "Wordpress". I don't think there would be enough custard pies? It has a place - and I completely respect that - but its place isn't where we go with clients...
Some of the best moments I enjoy are showing clients the power of a better, more capable CMS, and seeing those lightbulb moments.
Quite simply - people. Surround yourself with colleagues, and also clients that mirror your values and beliefs, and never waiver.
Treat others how you wish to be treated, and success (however you measure it) will come.
