Jonathan Million

Founder & Chief Innovation Officer

My curiosity makes me ask questions. My need to please makes me innovate. I love to work with teams who like to drive positive change through their business. Innovation can simply be making a subtle change to a digital technique, through to a complete overhaul of a slow, tired system that isn’t working.

My approach is to build the eco-system that can deliver positive impact and innovate the path to lean, agile working systems that accelerates client journeys and brand growth.

Richard Heath

Managing Director

I’m driven by a love of brands and getting things done with genuine, impactful insight. The reward comes from solving clients’ problems and seeing their brands fly in market.  

I’ve specialised in communications, digital and neuroscience. Trying new things out excites me. This is what I love about Blue Yonder; the team are always exploring new ways to give Clients’ brands a head start on the market.  

I’ve led agencies and major accounts out of the UK and Singapore. Working with CSuite marketers from countless categories all around the world has given me an insight into the real day to day challenges of brand teams. Helping them navigate these challenges is hugely rewarding. I love a great insight, but what I really love is impact. I’ll run senior workshops, write papers, debate one on one, speak on a platform, or directly to the board... whatever it takes to create brand growth.
