As well as his work at Birdsong Productions, Jack is one of the UK’s most experienced Theatre Consultants and Project Managers and has worked on a huge range of cultural projects around the world.  


His career started as a Production Manager in the theatre industry, primarily for new writing, tours and outdoor events, but also included dance, opera, the West End, corporate work, The RSC and the National Theatre.


He left theatre in 1998 to work as a production manager on a number of visitor attractions, including working for Imagination on the Millennium Dome. In 2001 he joined Theatre Projects Consultants in London, and in 2004 left with three colleagues to set up Charcoalblue.


During eight years as the Charcoalblue Projects Director, Jack managed over twenty projects in six different countries, opening ten new or refurbished performance venues, and also led the design and installation of several major projects at the National Theatre as part of their on-going Technical Master Plan.


Having set up Plann Limited in 2008, Jack is currently consulting and providing project management for a number of high profile organisations in the UK and abroad including The Royal National Theatre, The Bristol Old Vic, The Abbey in Dublin, The Bush Theatre and The Court Theatre in New Zealand.
