John McKiernan aka Platform-7
I am event organiser and originator, curator and location advisor with more than 20 years experience, working under the moniker Platform-7.
My formative years were spent in award winning major UK advertising agencies before leaving the UK to travel extensively and work internationally. Returning to the UK I set up one of Britain’s first coffee/bar chains, which included curated exhibitions, outdoor theatre stage, performances spaces and festivals. The Platform-7 network formed during this period and has gone on to receive a number of awards from Arts Council England, Arts Humanities Research Council and others. Publications include book chapters, extensive blog posts and press reviews with work regularly cited by universities and in published studies. I advise a wide range of individuals and corporate clients on ideas generation, creativity methods and business modelling.
