ready to tell me about your

BIG IDEA that will change the world?

I'm Julie Creffield

A business strategist, innovation specialist, keynote speaker and creative genius…obsessed with the BIG IDEA’s that change the world, in fact the BIG IDEA’s that cnhange our world as small business owners.

I’ve spent close to 30 years helping others to fulfil their potential by thinking BIGGER and taking fearless action towards getting their ventures off the ground and working for them.

I have been in business as a freelancer, consultant and serial entrepreneur for coming up to 30 years, there’s very little I haven’t seen or experienced as I have navigated the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur, and I have worked with thousands of small business owners just like you to help build more sustainable, successful ventures. 

I am also an Innovation Director for the UK’s biggest provider of innovation hubs, working with SME’s in the creative, tech and life sciences sectors based across 2 centres on the Herts/London border, just near the M25 and Googles latest Data Centre.

I help people focus on the stuff that actually matters, before it is too damn late, some people call this purpose…I call this LEGACY…it’s what we do while we are here, rather than what we leave behind….and it starts with figuring out your BIG IDEA, the hook that will capture the attention of your clients, collaborators and cheerleaders.

Oh and we have fun along the way, cos that’s kinda important too. 

The business owners

i Love helping...

are ambitious Solo business owners who are braving the entrepreneurial world by themselves. Founders, CEO’s, Experts, Speakers, Consultants, Coaches, Therapists, Creatives, artists, Changemakers…the title doesn’t really matter as much as your desire to do BIG things through your venture.

My clients are talented, driven folks, sometimes multi-passionate, often but not always neurodivergent people figuring out what and who the hell they are lol

They come from all walks of life, and zoom in from all over the world, but the thing they have in common is they genuinely want to help others AND also help themselves…cos you know that is also allowed right?

My clients tend to be in the messy middle of life, and are on a mission to change the world…even if they don’t know it yet ha ha, they have a yearning inside for things to be different. 

My programs help SME’s at all stages of their journey…and many of my clients have worked with me for 10+ years now, needing different types of support as their venture scales. 



I started my life in very humble surroundings, one of six kids growing up in a single parent family on a council estate in East London. I have gone on to live an extraordinary life of travel, adventure and creativity…not without a few bumps along the road of course. 

I worked as a freelance artist, project manager, trainer and consultant for 10 years, before I switched to online business and grew my first online venture to 6 figures, with my content being seen by millions of people around the world. I have worked with some of the worlds BIGGEST brands, and some of the UK’s most influential decision makers. 

I am an author of 14 books (my 15th is underway) and my story has been shared on media channels and on stages in more than 50 countries.

As a coach and consultant I’ve worked with more than 20,000 individuals around the world helping them to think bigger and do better, by taking radical self responsibility, fearless action, and making the most of the valuable and limited resources we have



julie in your back pocket service

Want me all to yourself for a WHOLE year? 

I get it…sometimes you just want a mentor and coach to help you with the BIG PICTURE THINKING on an ongoing basis and the accountability to keep moving forward. 

I work with a select number of VIP clients each year who are serious about scaling, I call this my “Julie in my back pocket” service, and this is unlike any coaching service you’ve ever experienced…its the FULL WORKS, part coaching, part consulting, part done for you support…I will be your cheerleader and co-conspirotor and together we will create magic.

People often want to know the kind of investment they are looking to pay for something like this before they jump on a call, and what I would say is it depends on the support you need, how much you already have in place in your business and what access you need to me. 

After any call I do with a potential client, I send them a proposal for them to consider their options. I don’t take credit card details on any of my calls LOL…in fact I never suggest putting business coaching on a credit card.



I love speaking and training large groups, so if you are an organisation, company or even a small business owner who has a team of leaders, or group of other small business owners that need a bit of geeing up…I’m your gal.

An award winning international keynote speaker with hundreds of gigs behind me, I use a mix of high impact storytelling, easy to apply tactics and strategies, and a whole heap of creativity to make sure nobody ever falls asleep.

My keynote “What’s THE BiG Idea – Innovation Strategies to Change The World” has been described as a talk with tears, cheers and takeaways…obviously not of the fast food variety lol





Writing is what got me into the online world. After a decade of doing community engagement in the real world, I set up a simple blog and before you knew it had millions of readers around the world. I still love to write, sharing my thoughts and the latest expertise around CHANGE in business, life and in the workplace…so check out what I’ve had to say recently.
