For over 25 years we’ve succeeded in helping our clients to grow. We’re honored to be a valued partner for some of the most innovative and successful companies in the world. We know that strong brand management supports company growth. Five essential traits characterize our ability to help rapidly growing companies manage their corporate brand.
As a strategic communication partner, our primary objective is to help our clients to define a shared vision of their company’s story. In reality, we’re not creating a story; we’re uncovering one.
How do we reveal your company’s story? It’s deceptively simple: we listen. We conduct in-depth interviews with principal stakeholders including C-suite executives, Board members, senior employees, and external collaborators. We carefully review each interview and look for patterns of thought that define bedrock values. Next, we consider how these core values interrelate and how they might form the foundation of your company’s story. Importantly, the result is not a bland mission statement or a list of capabilities, but rather, as the product of inquiry, it is a timeless story of who your company is.
We understand that stories evolve and so we work with our clients to build a brand framework that is robust enough for today’s challenges, while also being extensible, in anticipation of tomorrow’s opportunities.
We’re media-agnostic. Our openness to change means that we’re evolving along with you. We deliberately avoid specializing in a single craft; instead, we draw on our extensive multidisciplinary experience to recommend the most compelling way to tell your company’s unique story. We draw on our network of trusted partners to deliver discipline-specific expertise, providing our clients with the services they need, when they need them, all while preserving the deeper story.
We’re team players. The brand framework we build together enables us to collaborate with your cross-functional teams in a flexible way that best suits their tactical messaging needs while reinforcing the deeper company story.
For some of your teams, the advantage is in their access to plug-and-play communication tools that we create to help them respond effectively to daily communications challenges. For others, the best solution is to develop materials that differentiate a particular initiative and extend the brand.
In some large agencies, your account team separates you from the people doing the work. Our personal approach means you’ll have direct access to our principals, strategic thinkers and creative experts.
Creativity is a dialogue, and we continually seek out our clients’ views and engage them in improving the outcome of our shared vision. However, we’re as interested in creating and implementing finely-crafted communications as we are in defining strategy because we know that the best plan is worth nothing without expert execution.
We love what we do. Our comprehensive approach to corporate branding enables us to gain perspective from the insights of your C-suite executives. Seeing and hearing your leaders’ passion for their work allows us to grasp the depth and vitality of the company’s story.
No one knows who first said, “Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life” (it wasn’t Confucius), but our team are among the lucky ones who have found their calling. We find satisfaction in knowing that our passion mirrors that of our clients.
