John Philpin

John works with people and companies that are hell-bent on improving the lives of the individual … and that keeps coming down to platforms, data and the trust in that data.
He puts the human back into the center of thinking, through translation …. marketing to sales, tech to business, business to customer, idea to value … society lives on islands of expertise that speak very different languages and too often meaning is lost in the conversation between those islands. He interprets using the vocabulary of people to bring a common understanding between the parties.
