Brian Daly is an award-winning creative director, composer, songwriter, director, writer, musician and one-time Red Faces contestant with over 25 years’ experience in the creative industries. After completing his creative arts degree at Wollongong University, Brian worked as a gigging musician, sound engineer, producer, theatre writer/director and a wandering minstrel at Old Sydney Town before falling unexpectedly into the world of advertising.
For 20 years he held leading creative roles in traditional advertising agencies, including 9 years as group creative director at Enigma — the largest regionally-based agency in Australia, before setting up his creative consultancy, The Proverbials, in 2015. He has created, curated and communicated brands for a diverse range of local, national and global clients across a wide range of industry sectors.
His success in producing positive outcomes for his clients has left him in no doubt that creativity is not just some peripheral cultural activity, it is a core driver of economic growth and as such should be embraced at the heart of every business.
