Panel of great agencies in Bristol

We are excited to present the latest in our Agency Leaders Panel series and are incredibly fortunate (and pretty darn flattered) to confirm some of the most influential agency leaders in Bristol. You'll also have the opportunity to get feedback on your own agency growth challenges over a dinner and an audience Q&A.

Introducing the panelists:

Simon Barbato (Mr.B & Friends)

After an exciting (well, it was the mid 90’s) career in leading London advertising, integrated marketing and brand agencies, Simon was always destined to start and grow his own agency. Mr B & Friends today is the reflection of his vision in 2006; an agency hell-bent on producing brave thinking that really challenges clients, beautiful work that engages consumers, and successful marketing that keeps us in our clients’ good books.

Chris Gee (Rixxo)

Chris is a curious, innovative and passionate entrepreneur. Working in sales for the early years, Chris took over the family business, a failing chain of music shops, after a terrible tragedy. He recovered it and exited in 2012. During this time, Chris learned guitar, joined a band, established a regional events company and sat on the board of a music trust. Not satisfied with the quality of digital marketing at the time he and his brother established a fast growing digital marketing agency that has since been recognised by Google, Goldman Sachs and given support to accelerate this growth. Today Chris leads the team of Rixxo, an agency that is curious by its nature and unbounded by their approach to problem-solving.
