Our services

To help you realise your business ambition, we work in four key areas: identifying and understanding market opportunities, developing marketing plans to ensure you meet your objectives, delivering creative, targeted marketing campaigns and using workshops to energise your team and build your innovation capability.

Market research and customer insight

To develop truly effective marketing you need a profound understanding of your market, your competitors and most importantly, your customers. We use a range of primary and secondary research tools to map exactly where your business or brand is today.

People with good ideas are much more creative and much more radical. It’s not quantity that counts. All you need is one brilliant idea.
Neil Turok
Change will lead to insight far more often than insight will lead to change.
Milton Erickson
Creative thinking is not a talent, it is a skill that can be learnt. It empowers people by adding strength to their natural abilities which improves teamwork, productivity and where appropriate profits.
Edward De Bono
Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.
Howard Aiken
Never innovate to compete, innovate to change the rules of the game.
David O. Adeife
Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.
Theodore Levitt
New ideas pass through three periods: It can’t be done, it probably can be done, but it’s not worth doing, and I knew it was a good idea all along.
Arthur C. Clarke
You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere.
Lee Iacocca
There is a vitality, a life force, that is translated to you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and will be lost.
Martha Graham
To have a great idea, have a lot of them.
Thomas Edison
Without the playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable.
Carl Jung
A problem well stated is a problem half solved.
Charles Kettering
The enterprise that does not innovate ages and declines. And in a period of rapid change such as the present, the decline will be fast.
Peter Drucker
As competition intensifies, the need for creative thinking increases. It is no longer enough to do the same thing better . . . no longer enough to be efficient and solve problems.
Edward De Bono

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is doing something else.
