Our team

Who co-creates & delivers our high impact marketing communication and engagement programmes?

Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.

- Steve Jobs


Any company’s biggest asset is its internal teams. Its people. Cofinitive has worked with major brands on their employee engagement strategy and likes to practice what it preaches by only having the best as part of their team.

We firmly believe in the development of future generations in the workforce, and the retraining of those who have had a career path change – as such you will, more often than not, see someone on some type of work experience in the Cofinitive office.

And as well as the core team, Cofinitive also has an extensive global network of experts in its armoury, so are happy to BYOT (bring your own team) as clients’ requirements dictate.
