Event description
The journey to owner of a successful creative agency, record label boss & award-winning writer has been an interesting one.

About this Event

George Thompson traversed several different industries before settling in as director of his own creative agency. From DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s poll and creator of one of the most highly-regarded club brands to ‘bottom-rung’ as he entered a new industry in 2006, he’s had to build himself up.

The journey to owner of a successful creative agency, record label boss & award-winning writer has been an interesting one filled with passion, commitment & an unwavering desire to create the life he wanted, that of a creative entrepreneur.

George Thompson – the Mammoths

At the age of 45, George has already founded 2 successful businesses & amassed over 25 years marketing & live events experience. In 1993 George created “Feel”, one of the nation’s most highly-regarded club brands, attracting well over 500,000 clubbers to events over a 10-year period. During this time George developed an understanding of youth culture, entertainment & brand value that still serves him incredibly well today.

In 2004 he moved into the corporate events sector and after successful spells with 2 companies launched the Mammoths in 2012. In 2018 Mammoth reported turnover of £754k & £70k profit.
