About me

Nick Elliott founded Booster Consulting in January 2020. After 25 years of working with some of the best people in advertising and marketing, he decided it was time to launch his own consultancy to help Clients function better, and Clients & Agencies work better together to BOOST their marketing communications…and therefore their business as a result.

Before Booster, Nick was Managing Director of R3 EMEA (based in London) working with Clients including Unilever, Shell, HSBC, American Express, Samsung, Sony PlayStation, T-Systems, Microsoft and AkzoNobel.

Prior to that, Nick worked briefly for a tech start-up, but then 20 years were spent Agency-side with the likes of WPP, M&C Saatchi, EuroRSCG/ Havas & Dentsu.

Nick’s experience working with so many agencies and brands, having a passion for analysis and problem solving, combined with a positive and personable attitude, positions him perfectly for the purpose of Booster Consulting.

Nick is a Londoner, who spent his childhood in Hong-Kong and India and is based on the South Coast of England (with a short commute into London) with his wife and three children.
