Damola Timeyin (Author)
Damola Timeyin is a creative strategist for Facebook and Instagram. Formerly a strategy director and partner at advertising agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty and member of founding team at Osper, one of the UK’s first mobile banks for young people. At BBH he delivered everything from social to brand strategy for household British brands such as Tesco, Weetabix and Clarks Shoes. When he is not working on brands, he moonlights as Head of Strategy for creative network, People of Culture Collective (PoCC) and mentors young people who want to break into the creative industries.

Robby Enthoven, Managing Director of Nando's (Author) Born out of South Africa, made famous in the UK, arguably Nando’s has become as big a part of British culture as drinking tea. More than just PERi-PERi chicken and chips, countless commentators have looked to understand the secrets of its enduring appeal.
In this foreword, Nando’s lifts the lid on the brand’s special recipe (not that recipe), as they discuss the food, experience and culture that underpins the brand.
