With a mission to revolutionise stuffy time management courses, Think Productive launched in April 2009 and has earned rave reviews from the likes of British Airways, The Cabinet Office, eBay, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Barclays Commercial Bank for its practical, ‘at-desk coaching’ approach.  

Graham hosts the popular business podcast, “Beyond Busy”, which explores the issues of productivity, work/life balance and how people define happiness in their lives, profiling interesting people from Olympic gold medallists to tech entrepreneurs to clowns.  

Away from productivity, Graham’s background and other big passion is for the charity sector.  He was the co-founder of Intervol, an international student volunteering charity.  Previous roles include Chief Executive of Student Volunteering England, Head of Volunteering at the University of Birmingham and an advisor to the UK Government on youth volunteering policy.
