Workshops, programming and training

Project and event management

Our company name was inspired by the idea of boxing clever – using savvy, fancy footwork and skill to defeat bigger opponents. 

Especially in uncertain times, we believe that anybody can compete with the big players if they take the opportunities to up skill and are exposed to new ideas. We use our experience as journalists and workers across the creative industries to discover and programme best speakers for the right formats to give you honest insight into business and careers. 

We use the skills and contacts we built up as journalists to find the latest trends and industry developments, and the best speakers and tutors currently leading their field. We can tailor our offering for your business – whether that’s bespoke content, remote delivery alongside face-to-face workshops, or white label programming for your own events.
