About Jill

JillHawkins_001.jpeg

Jill is a globally experienced trends and insight consultant with special focus on health, wellbeing and creativity. A dynamic force of joy, she energises, inspires and moves people to see the future from new perspectives - and to feel excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.

 

For over 15 years Jill has been researching people, making sense of our shifts in attitudes, needs, values and quirks. She’s worked for some of the world’s biggest (plus some of the smallest and weirdest) brands, helping Nike, LEGO, Google, Arla, IKEA and Diageo ensure their purpose, product, communication and mindset are relevant and adaptable for the future. Her experience spans categories including fashion, newspapers, wine, toys, chocolate milk, insurance, shoes, tampons, paint and even painkillers (you name it, she’s probably worked on it).

 

Jill sees the world from many perspectives, thanks to a very diverse skillset: she holds degrees and postgraduates in fashion marketing and design, works with human insight and she’s a University lecturer. But she's also a personal trainer, a fitness instructor and currently studying a Masters in Psychology.

Polymath? Maybe.

Mad? Quite possibly.

Curious, imaginative and inspiring future thinker? Definitely! 

 

She is British and lives between Denmark and the UK.
