Graham Allcott is the founder of Think Productive, a training company that specialises in workshops that boost productivity. Graham’s transition from charity chief executive to freelance consultant inspired him to set up Think Productive. Realising he would have to manage without a PA and his great team of ‘do-ers’, Graham began reading about workflow and productivity tools, developing his own ways of ensuring maximum productivity. More recently, he released his book “How to be a Productivity Ninja. Forget time management: How to get things done in the age of information overload”.
Away from productivity, Graham’s background and other big passion is for the charity sector. A keen social entrepreneur, he is the founder of Fruitful Consulting, a social enterprise consultancy and Intervol, an international student volunteering charity. Previous roles include Chief Executive of Student Volunteering England and Head of Volunteering at the University of Birmingham and as an advisor to UK Governments red and blue on youth engagement policy. He was the founding Chairman of READ International, an award-winning charity recycling English curriculum textbooks by sending them to Tanzanian schools, and is a trustee of the youth homelessness charity Centrepoint.
