Marketing Mashup

Having worked throughout the marketing and advertising industry, Paul Jacobs and his 3 co-founders started Wax/On, a new type of creative and media agency. I spoke with Paul to talk about some of his past experiences, why he is passionate about startups, which entrepreneurs he admires, why podcasting is such a good medium and some of his favourite advertising campaigns.

Previously, he was Business Lead at Karmarama working with brands such as BT and Porsche and more recently a Director at Edelman, where he led the set-up of their creative services, working on global projects for Microsoft, Asics and Nestle. He also makes sure we all get enough sleep!
