My company name really wraps it up – I am Knight and I am all for uniting opposites and differences as I believe diversity brings more opportunities, several perspectives, better, more interesting results and increased profitability.
It’s good for people, it’s good for brands.
I’m half Swedish, half British. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Sussex, in the UK and the University of California, San Diego as well as a degree in Copywriting from Berghs School of Communication, Stockholm.
I have worked as a Copywriter since 1986 and as a Creative Director since 2004.
On winning the Gothia Aademi 2015 Leadership Scholarship:
"Christina Knight has worked in the communications industry for almost 30 years and has throughout her career been a role model by teaching, inspiring and acting as a mentor to young women in this still male-dominated industry. She dares to question and be critical about her own industry. With the book "Mad Women - A Herstory of Advertising", she put the issue on the agenda which led to an annual gender equality survey in the industry, a TED talk and numerous international lectures. Christina's effort and enduring commitment has certainly contributed greatly to change the perception of leadership in the communications industry, an industry that greatly influences the public space in terms of role models, values nd beliefs, not least in a younger generation. Christina Knight is a great role model and well worthy of attention for what she is - a leader. "
