Through their unique methodology they develop new business models, new thinking and in some cases new businesses. Katawave works with global giants such as Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson, but equally with creative media outlets.
With Katawave Aidan focuses on the intersection of Imagination and Strategy. As a former international and professional rugby player of 10 years he now applies his discipline to the world of digital disruption and business imagination. As a pioneer in digital media marketing solutions, products and business models Aidan adds a new dimension to the Katawave expertise.
Upon meeting the Katawave team Aidan immediately understood the necessity of focussing on people & things in tandem. Although he has always maintained a focus on strategy, he now sees “Katawave as the stepping stone to strategy, Katawave is pre-strategy”.
