We are the Consultant Collective. 

The Industry’s first Consultant Collective with a mission to support and connect experienced professionals in the media, marketing and advertising space with dynamic businesses in flexible and mutually beneficial ways. Our mission is to connect these experts with companies who need senior support and fresh thinking to solve an array of interesting challenges, just not on a full-time cost basis. It’s win-win.

We support independent consultants by building a thriving community who bring their unique strengths and fresh perspectives to help each other, and their clients, grapple with the biggest challenges. Through TheZoo.London, businesses can access in just one brief and marketplace all manner of experts from saving the planet, to harnessing AI, whilst simultaneously helping businesses to manage all kinds of operating and organisational challenges.

Our values are to Be Smart, Be Kind and Have Integrity, and this is what you will feel in every interaction you have with TheZoo.London. We are committed to having a positive impact on our society and environment from Day 1.

Co-founded by Marco Bertozzi, an expert in the digital and programmatic agency space and ex sales leader at Spotify and Whalar, and Rachel Forde, who was previously CEO at IPG media agency UM London and Publicis’ Spark Foundry, TheZoo.london brings together two industry veterans with over 50 years’ combined leadership experience and a vision to reimagine the way businesses and professionals connect.
