BA Hons (writing/drama); AIB (UK); DAD (3)
A marketing consultant, adman, writer, web developer, author …with a brief spell as a banker, actor and trainee Tibetan monk.
G Henshaw (his first name is just G – he blames his pommy hippy parents) has worked for some of the UK’s leading international advertising agencies (JWT, Ted Bates, BMP Needham, Davidson Pearce, Saatchi & Saatchi… ) as a senior creative and board director before starting is own advertising agency (FGH) in London in 1990. Prior to moving to Australia in 1996 he was commissioned by Penguin to co-write a series of children’s books, and he now occasionally writes and publishes his own work.
Since arriving down under he has maintained his professional contact with the marketing world through his own advertising agency in Sydney (BSH), working primarily in the finance, automotive, property and retail industries. BSH was one of the country’s largest independent ad agencies. After selling his agency in 2002 he has worked on the “other side” as a marketing director for a mortgage management company (helping it become BRW’s 3rd fastest growing company in Australia), established an events company (and sold) and has advised growth strategies to companies from a marketing and advertising perspective through his own marketing company : The Good Thing About… www.tgta.com.au
Since 2010 he has been involved with well respected web development company – Mighty Media (established in 1994) – www.mightymedia.com.au – and subsequently became a director. With other like-minded experienced marketing individuals he is growing this digital marketing agency and is continually striving for a good work/life balance.
He is happiest, in work, in either one of his hammocks – one in Lake Cathie, south of Port Macquarie the other in Sydney’s Northern Beaches – devising creative and marketing strategies. And dreaming of not working when he is really happy enjoying the gorgeous distractions of life with his darling Michelle and trying to catch up with his grown-up children. G is still trying to decide what he would like to do when he grows up – life has too much to offer.
