Tom Crawford


Over a career spanning 18 years Tom Crawford has gained diverse and rich experience, predominantly in HR and specifically Internal Comms and Engagement. That aside he has a strong passion for the subject of brand and its relationship with employees.

After a bit of an indulgent degree in German, Tom spent five valuable years at British Airways being groomed in all things corporate and business before six years in consultancy with Omnicom. Since then he has had spells at Deloitte, Eon and Telefonica-O2, running Internal Comms and Engagement functions. In addition he has broad experience in diversity and all things talent attraction.

Tom recently stepped off the corporate treadmill to set up The Brain Miner – built on a premise that everyone has fantastic ideas buried within them – they just need some help finding them, extracting them and then polishing them into shiny diamonds.

Tom is also using this period in his life to dedicate time to campaigning for better understanding of mental health in the workplace, especially at a senior level. Having first hand experience of what it’s like building a successful career whilst suffering from a major mental illness in silence, he can bring a fresh and challenging perspective to this topic.
