Head of Experiential & Growth
Geometry Global

Andy Dougan’s twenty year career in marketing communications began in 1996 when he realised that being a member of a touring rock band, was likely to be a short-lived career and was drawn towards the creative nature of the agency world.

Since then he has focused on creating & delivering brand experiences for some of the world’s leading brands including:  Huawei, BMW Group, Jumeirah, Emirates Airlines, PepsiCo, TJX & Microsoft.

In June 2016, he returned to join Geometry Global UK, flagship agency of WPP’s global brand activation network, as Head of Experiences and part of the UK management team.  

A seasoned events practitioner, Andy is passionate about the role and value brands can play in an ever increasingly experience led, digitally enabled world.

Andy is a board member of Elevate (The mentoring programme for the events and experiential industry) and a Trustee for Action for M.E.
