"I created IBE in 2006 after years of working in law firms and large corporations. It became obvious to me that combining legal and marketing strategies early in business and brand development projects would drive value for all involved. Sharing that insight around me produced enthusiasm with a wide variety of business professionals. So I decided to bring this idea to life. First in London, then Sydney and now in NYC since 2013:"
