This month’s speaker is Derek Moore, CEO and Co-Founder of Coffee & TV
Derek Moore is CEO and Co-Founder of Coffee & TV, an independent visual content studio, specialising in creative VFX, animation, design and colour grading. Since starting the studio in 2012, Derek has been responsible for its incredible growth and success; from a start-up to an established multi-million pound business, now regarded as one of the UK’s leading facilities, working with a diverse range of clients and boasting an extensive portfolio of world-class, award-winning work.
Prior to establishing Coffee & TV, Derek spent many years as a visual effects artists himself. Working alongside superstars such as Coldplay and George Michael, and with big brand clients including British Airways, Renault and L’Oreal. His determination, work-ethic and eye for detail garnered him a stellar reputation at the highest level of his craft.
Derek moved into management in 2005 with a management buy-out of post-production company Clear. In less than three years, he turned it around from administration to being a successful and profitable enterprise, which was then sold to a global competitor.
The deep understanding of his industry from the perspective of both an artist and a business owner has informed Derek’s ability to assemble and lead teams of exceptional, like-minded individuals, who share his passion for creativity and a desire to elevate their craft. This has enabled Derek to forge a cutting-edge business with both healthy profit margins and a celebrated company culture.
An enthusiastic supporter of entrepreneurial enterprise, Derek now shares his experience and wisdom to help other businesses, CEOs and management teams by acting as an advisor to a number of diverse and exciting creative companies. He is also a frequent speaker on industry and business panels at international events.
