Andrew Dobbie, 40, is a creative entrepreneur and CEO of MadeBrave – a strategic branding agency based in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.
A true creative at heart, Andrew began his career as a designer and photographer after studying Multimedia Systems at University of the West of Scotland. Now considered one the UK’s leading branding experts, Andrew believes strongly in brands that live their purpose and that are built from the inside out.
Since launching MadeBrave in 2012 on a shoestring budget of just £1000, Andrew has grown MadeBrave into a 60-strong, multi-million pound business – creating award winning work for many of the world’s leading brands, including Nestle, Medtronic, Diageo and KPMG.
Andrew believes that through driving a positive workplace culture, exceptional work is born. This philosophy has led to numerous award wins for MadeBrave, including Campaign’s Best Places to Work award and a ranking on The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For List.
In addition to running MadeBrave, Andrew is well known for presenting a monthly podcast, ‘Just A Chat With’, celebrating best-in-class creativity from around the world.
When he’s not helping brands find their brave, Andrew can be found at home with his family or honing his electric guitar skills with his French Bulldog, Astro, by his side.
