Borne out of Rafe’s strong belief in the ‘community of ideas’, the INNOVATION INDEX is a collective space for engagement and innovation. It’s not just a place for sharing Rafe's latest discoveries in the worlds of art, creativity, technology and culture, but it is also hub for other innovators to express their own ideas and thoughts on positive disruption.
With a career spanning several leadership roles in brand engagement, marketing and corporate innovation, Rafe is more than just keynote speaker talking about his favourite topic…he is someone who lives it. For this reason alone, he is often invited to headline high-profile speaking events for the likes of Microsoft, Nissan, Aviva and numerous other blue-chip clients.
Rafe is best-known as the co-founder and CEO of cutting-edge music startup, Sofar Sounds. But before that, he was also the Global Marketing Director at The Walt Disney Company, the Director of Global Marketing at Coca-Cola, and the Director of Innovation at Diageo. This unique experience highlights a career dedicated to innovation in all its forms, making him the perfect voice for it.
