Gareth Jenkins founded and is Managing Partner of Abovegroup, the region’s leading branding consultancy, and works extensively in the fields of branding, graphic design and communications strategy. After studying politics in the UK and working for about a decade in London, mainly in the financial sector, he discovered design and what has remained one of his core areas of interest – the world of identity.
He’s a big believer in design and the collective responsibility of designers to develop better communities, societies and nations through their work. He started Show & Tell, Abovegroup’s highly successful series of talks; and co-founded HOME, the region’s first dedicated co-working space. He runs Picture House, a mobile classic cinema series; serves on the board of Plastikeep (Trinidad & Tobago’s largest environmental management company); and advises a number of start-ups on business and communications strategy.
