Core team

  • Alastair Creamer

    Alastair was the driving force behind the award winning Catalyst programme at Unilever. Motivated by the belief that everybody is creative, he empowers people and businesses to employ an artful approach to serious problems and finds the world a better place for it.

    “I was educated as a musician and when I chose to stop playing, I discovered other creative channels – acting, directing, writing and painting. It’s from all these worlds that I’ve developed my network of creative partners. I’ve also inherited my father’s love of handwriting. I founded and developed Catalyst at Unilever, an innovative in-house programme of creative training and inspiration. I ran it for seven years before co-founding my own business to take the approach into all manner of organisations. Before all that I spent twelve years in the arts and a further six in other businesses (including Sainsbury’s first Arts Sponsorship Manager) with a stint as Dean of Faculty at the London College of Music and Media. All these experiences come together in our work at Creamer & Co.”

  • Emma Haigh

    Senior Producer

    Emma brings her top-level production skills to our busy office. With a background spanning over 18 years in the media industry, including work with Big Finish, Blast Theory, Kudos Film and TV and the BBC,  she masterminds our projects and works closely across all aspects of the business. 

    Her freelance work has seen her taking on a wide variety of roles for some of the UK’s most successful, innovative and high-profile creative organisations.

    When not spinning the plates of producing she loves nothing more than singing with the talented and crazy ladies of Amersham A Cappella, going to the theatre, cooking, gardening and walking her second best friend, Monty, the springiest of springer spaniels.

  • Eloise Maxwell


    Eloise’s experience spans the worlds of contemporary art, design, academia and education. Her postgraduate studies in art history and curating have given her a deep-seated appreciation for all things visual, while her work supporting small organisations and startups in a range of industries leaves her well equipped for the busy and varied environment at Creamer & Co. 

    When she’s not supporting the team, you can find her wandering around an art gallery or clambering up a wall at her local climbing gym.  

  • Todd Harrington


    Todd leads Creamer & Co.’s US endeavor.  With the steady interest in workplace culture on the rise, the time is right to introduce more companies in the US to the unique Creamer & Co. way of transforming culture through creativity.

    Todd is a seasoned storyteller and marketing strategist with over 25 years of experience in business development, creative and strategic marketing, and leadership management. He’s a true believer that creativity is an essential part of every person’s life, making creativity a critical part of a company’s culture in today’s work place. You could say, Todd’s innate understanding of culture and creativity  has been nurtured over decades of working across a broad range of industries, including traditional advertising (Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann, Y&R and others), digital media, performance arts and entertainment.  He has a successful track record for delivering innovative, long-term solutions to an extensive list of small and Fortune 500 clients in an authentic, thoughtful, and nurturing way.

    When time allows, Todd turns his storytelling pleasure to the world of children’s book writing, having penned and published two books: “What Are Trees For?” and “My Friend the Moon.”

  • Katie Best


    Katie helps leaders to solve messy problems. As a consultant and coach, she partners with them to design and deliver development programmes which bring fresh insight and focus as well as the skills and knowledge to move forward. Clients have included Barclays, V&A Museum, Mishcon de Reya, EY and Verizon. 

    With a PhD in Management from King’s College London Business School, and over 15 years’ experience working with companies in a wide range of sectors, she uses her strong research credentials to get below the surface of a problem, and her commercial focus to deliver solutions that work.

    Away from consulting, Katie loves rootling around antique markets for salvage, practising Iyengar yoga, hanging out with her friends and family, quizzing, and exploring museums – the weirder the better. Her yet-to-be-beaten favourite is the museum of flea circuses in Kiev, Ukraine.
