Penny Parnell

Part tightrope walker. Part inventor. Part hypnotist. Part strategist. Part cheerleader. Part magician. Part loon. That’s my job. In the past I’ve been everything from a law-dodging guerrilla marketer to a compliance-abiding financial advertiser, somehow winning a fair amount of pitches, awards and friends along the way. My official title now is Leader of all Things Creative for one of the nation’s favourite brands, notonthehighstreet – the home of thoughtful gifts. We champion 5,000 small creative businesses to do what they love, and give millions of customers brilliant reasons to shop with us. What a gig to have landed. What a privilege it is. What a very lucky sausage I am.
