David Hieatt
David Hieatt is the Co-Founder of The Do Lectures & Hiut Denim Co.

Leaving school at 16 to open a market stall selling sneakers taught David the importance of sales (and a good pair of shoes). On a good day he had money to buy enough petrol to get home. On a bad day with no sales, he walked. At 21, he joined Saatchi and Saatchi. There, David learnt to take risks from Paul Arden, one of the true mavericks of advertising. He was taught to trust his instinct. And to fight to make his ideas happen.

In 2001, he moved back to Wales and created howies, a clothing company that was heralded as the Patagonia of the UK for action sports. After selling it to Timberland, he co-founded the The Do Lectures, a globally acclaimed ideas festival and online platform, with an audience of millions. More recently David has created Hiut Denim Co, a jeans company that is helping to bring the jeans industry back to Cardigan in Wales. A town that used to have Britain's largest jeans factory.

David has spoken at Apple, Google, Red Bull and many other top companies and events. He is also the author of Do Purpose: Why brands with a purpose do better and matter more, and Do Open: How a simple email newsletter can transform your business (and it can).
