Quentin Millington

Founder

Quentin Millington has equipped FTSE-100 and other multinational companies to deliver strategy, culture, and leadership initiatives. He understands firsthand how tough it is to run and change a complex business.

He brings thoughtful, relevant ideas; enables senior teams to agree on direction; and helps departments build bridges and work toward a common goal.

Quentin speaks the varied languages of strategy and planning, leadership and culture, and systems and performance. He makes sense of complex problems using plain English.

As Chief Operating Officer and in related roles at tier-one investment banks, with budgets over US$100m Quentin led multidiscipline, client-facing teams of up to 130 people.

He also ran, across US$1bn businesses of more than 1,000 employees, global initiatives to increase revenue, enhance service, and cut cost.

Former chairman and non-executive director of a Big Lottery-funded enterprise, Quentin is now adviser to the CEO and executive board of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and a member of the Advisory Board of English National Opera.

He has an MPhil in Innovation, Strategy and Organisation from Cambridge, an MSc in International Management from SOAS, London, and a first degree in Oriental Studies Chinese from Oxford.

Proficient in Mandarin, Quentin has lived and worked in Hong Kong, New York, and Taipei.

Quentin has the rare and unusual talent of understanding both the business world and the technology world. He has initiative and drive but is also a great team player.
