Callum Lee

Callum is an expert in the cultural and creative industries, trusted by some of the largest organisations in the sector.

He works across BOP’s projects – from focused evaluations to major strategies.

Recent projects include the evaluation of culture in ERDF for the European Commission, the evaluation of the BFI Film Academy, or the development of the Technology Strategy Board’s Creative Industries Strategy (now InnovateUK). Other clients include Creative England, Westminster City Council (looking at Soho’s creative cluster), the Media Trust, and the RIBA.

Between 2013 and 2015, he was also the Deputy Director of the European Creative Business Network.

Callum introduced BOP’s annual internship scheme with the Social Mobility Foundation.

In the last few years, he has spoken at conferences in the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Singapore. He has been in the Guardian and on Germany’s ZDF TV.
