Neil Bestford

Project and Training Director | Founder

After over a decade working for some of the region’s top creative agencies, managing regional and national design, brand development and marketing projects, I spent four years as a Programme Leader and Lecturer in Advertising and Graphic Communication, working for one of the UK’s top FE colleges. Here I helped learners achieve international recognition through D&AD, the world’s largest support network for the creative industries.

I have eight years' board level and management experience for a Sunday Times Top 100 Employer and have supported charity work with both Helix Arts and the NSPCC.

I hold a BA honours degree in Creative Practice and a Higher National Diploma in Higher Education; and have experience teaching across Levels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
