CEO, The CAFFEINE Partnership
Sophie Devonshire is a change accelerator. She’s CEO of The Caffeine Partnership, an energizing strategic consultancy that works with 'impatient leaders' to grow their brands and businesses, fast. Her book Superfast: Lead at Speed (2018) is as invigorating as a big mug of coffee: in it, she offers insight into energy management, purposeful leadership, and how to keep pace with breakneck innovation.
Having won awards for her own business’ ‘sexi-flexi’ approach, Sophie is a passionate advocate of flexible working as the future of effective companies, and she regularly speaks about innovative approaches to balance business and family life.
Earlier in her career, she worked at P&G, Coca-Cola Great Britain, Interbrand, and Leo Burnett Dubai. As an independent entrepreneur, she founded an online retail brand for luxury maternity and motherhood, which she sold to Quintessentially in 2013. After almost five years as the managing— and later board—director of Quintessentially’s Retail Group, Sophie returned to The Caffeine Partnership as CEO in 2015.
