We SPEAK / CONSULT / TEACH / WRITE / WORKSHOP / STRATEGIZE / IDEATE / FACILITATE
...and generally play well with others.
Faris and Rosie Yakob are the husband and wife co-founders of Genius Steals, a location independent strategy and innovation consultancy. They have been living on the road/runway for three years, working with notable global brands, agencies around the world, and startups that have sworn them to secrecy.
They believe originality is a myth: That nothing comes from nothing. And that you should expose yourself to the best of what's out there. Because creativity comes from unlikely connections. Ideas are new combinations. You can't invent without inventory.
Faris is the author of Paid Attention & co-author of Digital State, both published by Kogan Page. He previously founded a digital agency in NYC, was chief innovation officer of a holding company, and was chief digital officer of the flagship NYC office of the world’s largest advertising agency.
Rosie is a speaker, writer and consultant. Before founding Genius Steals with Faris, she led social & emerging media at Saatchi & Saatchi, and a team of strategists at 360i, in addition to teaching graduate students at Miami Ad School.
