The Team

Marlon "Train" ForresterMarlon Forrester

MANAGING DIRECTOR & SENIOR WRITER

In a world of consumerism fuelled by the next big concept, the next it guy, girl or product, Marlon "Train" Forrester, has assembled a team with over 60 years’ experience - poised to write it, film it, produce, record, present and ultimately SELL it… for you. 

As a writer, "Train" as he is known, began his career in short copy for his University paper before graduating to policy writing and soon after became a published social commentator and writer with the Education Department.  A 16-year stint in corporate affairs working with the media and leading marketing initiatives across the FMCG landscape followed.  All the while Train was creating compelling copy across fields as diverse as marketing, entertainment, comedy, sports, music and training & development.  

A sought after speaker and presenter, Train lends a sharp wit and a touch of irreverence to speeches, presentations and pitches turning every engagement into an occasion to remember.  In addition, Train’s music & lyrics have been played over the airwaves and webstations of 71 countries culminating in an honorary mention amongst finalists in the 2012 International Songwriting Competition.

 “These days”, says Train “every agency worth its salt is a triple threat. Line & Length doesn’t make threats, it delivers on promises.  Howzat?!!!
