Key Associates

Ci:Creative Intelligence works with a wide range of associates from the world of the arts and development. Some are individual artist-trainers, others are organisations similar to Ci:Creative Intelligence but with their own particular areas of expertise. Collaboration rather than competition is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the arts world, so none of us finds it strange to work with competitors.

Saul Cambridge

Saul read law at Cambridge University and trained as a solicitor with Norton Rose in London, specialising in investment banking. He spent some time with Citicorp Investment Bank before joining the prominent Midlands law firm, Freeth Cartwright, where he became a partner and Head of the Company and Commercial practice.

In 1995, Saul made a significant career change and became an actor, having won a place at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, one of the UK's leading drama schools. Since graduating, the majority of his professional acting work has been on the UK stage, including 3 national tours. He now combines his acting career with his legal and corporate experience, working as a consultant and trainer, often in association with Ci:Creative Intelligence. His clients include Zurich Financial Services, Red Bull, Pfizer and Scottish Courage, amongst many others.

Saul has recently added broadcast journalism to his portfolio of occupations and he can be heard regularly on BBC Radio Cornwall as a newsreader and roving reporter.
