Mentoring is vital to your career growth! The person in receipt of mentorship may be referred to as a protégé (male), a protégée (female), an apprentice or, in recent years, a mentee. However, true mentoring is more than just answering occasional questions or providing ad hoc help. It is about an ongoing sense of learning, dialog, and challenge so we want to help our stars even more, please find our willing Mentors who will help you  grow in your path to greatness. All you have to do is click on the link of the Mentor you like and we will arrange for you to meet up with them, and best of all it's all free of charge!

Time is limited for our Mentor stars, so we will try our very best to get you in front of them so bear with us.  But remember you can always rely on us to talk to you whenever you like :) 
 
Happy Choosing!

  • Chris Thurling

    Digital Strategy, Digital Marketing and Business Innovation Adviser

    Chris Thurling

    Back in 1995, when the internet was still in its infancy, Chris founded digital agency 3Sixty. The company grew, survived, even prospered during the.com bubble and became highly respected in its field with clients such as ITV, Renault F1, Deutsche Bahn and several UK airports.

    After 17 years at the helm, Chris found he was doing less and less of what he really enjoys. And so in 2012 he decided to pass on the agency to his business partner and embark on new adventures.

    What Chris now offers his clients is innovative thinking on all aspects of digital business strategy and marketing. Chris understands the tech speak but de-mystifies it all and communicates in English. He is personable, well connected and experienced in building and developing multidisciplinary teams.

    Chris helped found the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising's (IPA) Digital Business Group, which he co-Chaired until Dec 2012. Chris was also a member of the IPA's behavioural economics taskforce and he retains a keen interest in the area.

    Among other things, Chris is currently working on a project pioneering insights from ‘big data’ to improve commercial performance in the aviation sector and is helping develop a social CRM strategy for a client in the tourism industry.
