Who is Ian Henderson?

Ian has been an advertising copywriter for many years, producing ads for cars and whiskeys at London agencies. He became interested in brand development, particularly for complicated businesses.

His business, AML Group, have been working in this area for about eight years. They describe their service as: “simple ideas for complicated businesses.” That covers things like technology, counter-terrorism, law and international finance.

It also includes retirement life insurance – anything that’s highly regulated and therefore difficult to communicate to potential customers so they understand what businesses do.
