    Leap 100 Breakfasts
    These breakfasts are small, informal affairs. We restrict them to 18 people – mostly the founders of Leap 100 companies. Our principal guest kicks off with roughly 10 minutes of introductory remarks; a light breakfast is served; and ideas and experiences are exchanged under Chatham House Rules. Attendees find them to be a useful forum for speaking candidly and learning from other successful entrepreneurs.

    Rob Pierre 
    Rob is the co-founder and CEO of Jellyfish, a fast-growing digital agency whose clients include Nestlé, Experian, Toyota and Samsung.

    Since its inception in 2005, Rob has grown the agency to over 400 staff working across seven offices in Europe, the U.S. and South Africa. In the last year alone, Jellyfish came 42nd in The Sunday Times International Track 200, were awarded Performance Agency of the Year at the Drum Search Awards and won SEM Agency of the Year at the Search Engine Land Awards – among other accolades. Last year also marked the launch of the agency’s new headquarters in London’s iconic The Shard.

    Featured in the BIMA 100 2017, Rob’s passion for digital is infectious. He actively shares his thinking with his colleagues and the wider industry. As well as being a regular contributor to the trade and business press, Rob is also an experienced awards judge, having served as a juror for the Brand Republic Digital Awards and The Drum Search Awards, amongst others.

    Rob prescribes to the concept that more is lost from indecision than wrong decisions and as a result has created an environment where people are encouraged to challenge process and innovate. This culture has cultivated a highly motivated team with an open approach where anyone can share their thoughts and ideas freely. Today, Rob’s goal is to grow Jellyfish into a global boutique digital agency, a vision that he is already bringing to life.
