I help leading brands and organisations in the UK understand 'teens' and engage them effectively.

My name is Graham Sykes and I specialise in helping organisations achieve their youth objectives. I achieve this by using my unique expertise to help them understand young people, engage them effectively and influence their behaviour.

From my base in West Yorkshire I work both locally and around the UK.

I am committed to using my youth engagement expertise for the benefit of young people and as a result I only work with clients who share my commitment to providing products and services that improve young lives.

In the summer of 2019, I had my first book published. Entitled 'Destination Adulthood' it is an essential guide for young people and provides friendly and valuable advice on planning teh journey into adulthood and how to overcome the challenges that are faced. To complement this I run 'future planning' workshops in schools and colleges.

Finally, I complement my consultancy services with a range of creative services and a network of like-minded professionals who share my ethos and philosophy. As a result I are able to offer channel-neutral activity and a complete service for brief to delivery.
