Interview: James Kirkham, Head of Copa90

This podcast was a great excuse for me to head to my old stomping ground at Copa90, well almost as they have a new beautiful office and the faces have changed in the 3 years since my time there, as have the scale of their ambitions.

My chat with James managed to cover a multitude of areas including;
– Our shared education at Wolverhampton Uni (96-99)
– His background in art
– Starting a business in the dotcom crash with Holler
– Building the agency up to be one of the biggest social media ones at the time and eventually selling it to Leo Burnett
– Taking on a new challenge with the world’s biggest football video network
– Developing new revenue streams, and the brand globally
– and much more

You can find James on @spooneybear and on LinkedIn
