Phil Reay-Smith Joins 3 Monkeys Zeno
Christine Jewell, Managing Director

 We’re thrilled that Phil Reay-Smith, a former ITV News Correspondent and Daybreak Consumer Editor, has joined us as a director within our corporate division.


Earned media is a central pillar of our work and Phil has more than a decade of newsroom experience both in broadcast and national newspapers, working for ITV and EuroNews among others.  He moved into communications five years ago, joining Ogilvy PR in London, initially as Head of Media, and most recently as a director within its corporate practice, so brings a brilliant blend of consultancy skills and an understanding of the media landscape.


Phil will be working alongside Sarah Ogden to further build our corporate capability in the UK and Europe.  His appointment follows a series of corporate and business wins for 3 Monkeys Zeno over the last six months, including Avon, Anheuser-Busch InBev, and Godiva.  Phil’s remit will be to support the fast growth of the agency’s corporate practice and strengthen its media and content production capabilities.


In Phil’s own words “It’s the 3 Monkeys Zeno team, their big brand clients and their creative, human-centered approach to storytelling that makes this such an attractive assignment for me. I’m looking forward to getting to work growing the business and the reputation of the agency.”


We are currently enjoying a very healthy momentum on the corporate business side and it’s great to have Phil on board to help keep us moving in the right direction.

Tortoise Media

Shelling out for Tortoise Content?

Might be my age, but sometimes I really appreciate things being a bit slower.

Which is why the old headline trick – use an emotive word to seize the eyeballs – did the business when I saw a conscious move to provide us with slow news.

Yes, not instant news, citizen journalism, live eyewitness accounts or anything like that. Slow news. Take more time, think, breathe, consider, debate. Like the slow food movement, giving you something a little more provocative to chew on.
