About Trevor Robinson OBE
Trevor Robinson OBE is one of the most high-profile and highly regarded people in advertising, despite being told by his school careers advisor that he’d have more chance of being a bus driver. His background has enabled him to keep his feet firmly on the ground and to create populist ideas, loved by real people.
As a creative, he has been responsible for some of the most famous and talked about advertising of his era from the iconic and multi-award winning ‘You’ve Been Tango-ed’ Orange Slap to the more recent Haribo ‘Kids Voices’ campaign.
In 1995 he set up Quiet Storm, the first agency to write, direct and produce its own work. To this day it is still one of the few ad agencies where creatives direct their own work.
Beyond advertising, Trevor is renowned for his wider contribution to society. In 2020, he reignited the Create Not Hate initiative he originally set up in 2007 to open pathways for disenfranchised young people to build creative careers, and mobilised a staggering amount of support. He won the UK Black British Business Award for top senior entrepreneur 2020, and was awarded an OBE in 2009 for his services to charity and advertising.
Trevor is recognised in influencer lists including Debretts 500, Campaign’s A-List, The Drum Top 100 Adverati, the IPA’s iList - where he chairs the Ethnic Diversity Forum - and won Oystercatcher’s ‘outstanding, lifetime contribution to the industry’ award. This year, he was made a lifetime Fellow of the IPA.
