Vice President – Creative Consultancy EMEA & APAC
Guinness World Records

Neil Foster has spent the last 25 years working in PR and Integrated Advertising agencies in London, Sydney and Melbourne.

He joined Guinness World Records in 2019 to help drive the growth of its in-house agency providing record breaking solutions, productions and campaigns for brands and agencies.

Prior to joining Guinness World Records, Neil led the Brand Marketing team at Burson Marsteller.  This followed a five-year stint as Managing Director of the PR agency housed within independent integrated marketing group Cubo, where he launched the Earned Agency securing briefs from Brompton Bicycle, Newman’s Own, P20 Suncare, Very Lazy and Busch Gardens.

This was preceded by a four-year spell in Australia working for global advertising giant DDB’s integrated PR and experiential agency Mango Communications as their Creative Director and latterly, General Manager of the Melbourne office. 

Neil cut his teeth at legendary consumertech agency Bite Communications in London in the early years of the dotcom boom.
