Sunday 27th October 2013 – 11am – 12.30.
GalleryMuse was delighted to welcome Roger Mavity on Sunday 27th October to talk on his experience of photography and the art of Virginia Arendt who is on exhibit with Tree at GalleryMuse.
Roger Mavity founded his own advertising agency, Mavity Gilmore Jaume, in 1981. After selling the business in 1991, he became Chief Executive of the Granada Group’s leisure division, and he led the pitch for the company’s takeover of the Forte Group – still the biggest hostile takeover bid in British commercial history. He then became Chairman of Citigate, one of the UK’s most respected financial PR companies, and then became Chief Executive of the Conran Group. He left the Conran Group in early 2013 to concentrate on writing and photography. His art photography has been exhibited in London, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, and he is a trustee of The Photographers Gallery. His first book,Life’s A Pitch, has become an international bestseller, and his latest book, The Rulebreaker’s Book of Business, comes out this August.
