Chris, under the name The Good Company , spends his days working with organisations and businesses to bring a unique mix of brand strategy and connection to place to his customers.
Projects include The Piece Hall, Halifax, Regional Development Australia (Barossa), The South Pennines Regional Park, The Sandstone Ridge, Cheshire, Halifax Borough Market and many colleges & arts organisations.
These specialities have led him to work and lecture across the UK and in Australia & Europe.
He started Totally Locally in Calderdale way back in 2010 when Calderdale Council put out a call for a shop local campaign. It’s safe to say, Chris went a bit overboard with it! It had a huge effect on Calderdale almost immediately. He decided to give it away to anyone who wants it when he was inundated with requests from towns when they saw the effect Totally Locally had on his home town and the local area.
Chris grew up with a dad running a village shop, and a grandad running a bike shop. it’s where the passion to help small businesses comes from. “If my Dad had had access to something like Totally Locally all those years ago, it would have made life a lot easier for our family. That’s why I did this.”
