H Bureau: a specialist consultancy practice working with companies in entertainment, technology and experiences

About

Why we exist and who we are.

 

Our Story

A few years ago, Howard was Founder & CEO of a fast-growing creative business.

It was an exhilarating ride, but at certain key points in the journey he needed new skills, perspectives and connections to successfully turn his vision into reality.

The best way of doing this was to gain access to a pool of flexible, collaborative, top-tier talent with a proven track record and an understanding of what it took to build a modern creative company.

The problem? It didn’t exist.

H Bureau was created to fill this space, empowering individuals and organizations with new capabilities, knowledge and tools to thrive.

Our approach is akin to that of a movie producer: making things happen; enabling people to do their best work; collaborating with a hand-picked network of partners; and investing with the long game in mind.
