    Welcome to Unlocking Insights from #UnlockingAmbition – Scotland’s flagship business accelerator.

    At our 2022 graduation event Zoi Kantounatou was joined by special guest Andrew Dobbie.

    Andrew is founder & CEO of MadeBrave® - a Global Strategic Brand Agency. They help brands “Find Their Brave”.

    Andrew believes hugely in values and purpose-driven brands and business. But, values and purpose alone don't build brands—people do. And so together, you’ve got to put those values into action.

    And so in this discussion Andrew shares his philosophy on brand and building better – from humble beginnings to an agency of 60 employees.
