2022 Creative LIAisons Coaches

Paul Shearer

Chief Creative Officer Global Clients
Wunderman Thompson
, United Kingdom

I believe in always bringing a different point of view to everything I do.
I learned that working for Bartle Bogle Hegarty London, Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam, Ogilvy and being a founder partner at the global agency, Nitro.
In my time in the business, I have been lucky enough to have led global client’s such as Nike, Coke, Masterfoods and Volvo.
My understanding of the global environment is something I have always thrived on. 

Teaching me that being a creative is more than creativity. It involves responsibility, leadership and listening. 
I am a passionate believer that transformational ideas can make a real difference in the success of a brand and business.
I am all about simple, compelling, differentiating ideas.
I take innovation and data very seriously and embrace all that is new in the world of technology.
I am a firm believer in the power of creativity in all aspects of marketing and how it can be a big drum for global clients to succeed in an ever-changing world.

This is what I love doing best and it brings out the best in me.
This has also enabled me to be involved in work that has won over 70 Cannes lions, including the Middle East’s first ever GP.
Over 40 D&AD pencils and my fair share of One Show pencils and Clio trophies.
My work for Nike is also displayed in the V&A in London and toped the music charts in over 250 countries in the world.
I am a passionate film director and storywriter.

But my proudest moments are helping clients succeed.
After all that’s why we are here.
