We consult with businesses and other organisations that want to make creativity and business work together successfully. We are currently working with frieze on launching and growing their new Frieze Academy programme of events. You can see a few of our other previous projects (and what our clients said about us) below. Our key areas of expertise is in developing content across live events, digital and print. We believe that all businesses can use these three channels effectively in combination. 

The consultancy work we frequently carry out for businesses includes: 

  • Setting up new event strands, for marketing or revenue generation. 
  • Refining processes and workflows to cope with multi-channel publishing. 
  • Training and empowering staff to develop new products and services.

Clever Boxer has been nothing short of essential to creating a buzzing community of new companies and creative start ups here at Shoreditch House
— Jade Coles | Events Program Manager, Soho House Group

We’ve been running workshops and talks with east London’s premier member’s club since 2010. Talks are free to members (and a limited guestlist – drop us a line if you want to attend), and normally take place in the swish and secluded library. Our events are all themed around helping creative people be better at business, whether that’s the essential skills that anyone needs to launch their own initiative or get ahead in their careers, or sector-specific advice from leading industry figures. The Shoreditch House events have been a superb way for us to meet creative and ambitious people, and they’re always an enjoyable time to spend a lunchtime or evening. Check out our events page to see what’s upcoming, and the kind of events we’ve run in the past.


Having worked with Alan and Simone for over a decade I’m constantly blown away by their creativity, professionalism and incredible energy. They inspire all who work with them and always over deliver on any project. They are two of London’s brightest talents.
— Tim Arthur | Creative Director, Virgin Money; former CEO, Time Out Group

Time Out has grown from an innovative listings magazine launched in 1968 to the go to resource for finding the best things to do in cities around the globe – from Birmingham to Buenos Aires. We worked with the London mothership to pilot a set of learning courses under the banner of Live & Learn with Time Out. The first set of courses cover portrait photography, how to be a music promoter, launching a food startup, and how to get your blog buzzing – you can find details of all the courses here. We’re looking forward to developing and expanding the concept with the excellent team at Time Out.

We have loved working with Clever Boxer. They combine professionalism with an easy-going attitude. They do what they say they are going to do and they have fun at the same time. That is a great combination.
— Tom Hodgkinson | Editorial Director, The Idler

The Idler began as a literary and philosophical magazine back in 1993, and has since gone through multiple incarnations in print and online. It now has a permanent home in Notting Hill in form of The Idler Academy where, as well as selling a fine variety of books, they also run courses on everything from taxidermy to playing the ukelele. The Idler asked us to help structure and launch their first Business for Bohemians course – an eight week programme that covers all the essentials of launching a business, while being nothing like a dull an dusty MBA. We helped them run two semesters of the course, with a fantastic set of speakers and students.
