After University I have spent over 40 years in Advertising and Marketing, working for companies in advertising such as Davidson Pearce, Berry & Spottiswoode, LAP and major companies such as Pfizer in their toiletries division. I then started Little Strodl Advertisng in 1978 and formed Harris Kemp Advertising in 1981 with my partner Ken Kemp. We worked with many different areas of consumer business on brands such as Braun, Bonhams, Faber Castell, Trent Bathrooms, Sheraton, Conrad Hotels, and London Transport.
We specialised in the marketing of hotels and apart from the above and current clients have opened the Royal Garden in 1996, and are associated with the Landmark London. This led us to develop our on-line capability leading to the formation of our specialist division Optimax in 2009, which is now our main area of consultancy.
