Dan Macaulay is the founder and CEO at Brandwave, a sports marketing agency based in the South West of England. Dan grew up in Ireland, surrounded by some of the best surfing and windsurfing conditions in the world and spent much of his youth on the water teaching and competing in windsurfing.
He tells host Laura Nesbit how he became the European Marketing Director for O’Neill before working on huge sporting campaigns for the likes of Adidas, BMW and The North Face.
We also hear from Dan about some of the challenges brands face today in getting their message across in an authentic way, why he believes many outdoor brands are behind when it comes to sustainability and why he’s so passionate about sport being used as a catalyst for social change. Dan is also a proud ambassador of the Blue Earth Summit and tells us what that means for him.
