Fleurie Forbes-Martin

At 28 years old, Fleurie was named a BIMA 100 Rising Star - an award recognising the 100 brightest members of the digital industry.

After graduating, she began her career with Bournemouth-based marketing agencies, notably becoming Head of Marketing & Communications for Salad, where she helped the agency achieve its most successful year by winning contracts for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, parkrun, Team England, Investors in People and Hobbycraft.

After becoming vegan as a result of concerns about climate change, Fleurie approached ‘creative for good’ experts, Studio Republic, with a request to join the team. They created a role for her, tasked with increasing agency visibility and winning clients.

In 12 months, Fleurie has helped to define a new commercial focus, restructured the business, authored two white papers and won the London Marathon, National Deaf Children’s Society and The Climate Coalition as clients.

Alongside her day job, Fleurie also runs the UK’s first vegan marketing agency, Saffron Society.
