Nick Tate

VP Digital Innovation and Head of NEXT at GSK Consumer Healthcare


Nick’s career spans brand agencies, content and tech start ups, digital consultancies and corporate roles, all with the same common theme; using curiosity, human centred experience design and creativity to address big problems worth solving. Over the course of the last twenty years these problems have included addressing everything from young male suicide and female body image to repositioning expensive German cars, creating new financial service products and selling bananas. And everything in between.

Today, Nick is the VP Digital Innovation and Head of GSK NEXT, GSK Consumer Healthcare’s Disruptive Innovation arm focused on discovering, launching and incubating new digital health businesses across the changing face of health and wellbeing.

He is a keen writer and contributor to global innovation communities, but most proud of his best innovations…Eliza (9), Artie (6) and Betsy (6 months).
