Why choose us?
Your business is at a transition (a new CE/MD, new owners).
You have an ambitious growth trajectory and need help to realign, build and consolidate your external presence in the market. As a matter of fact, this often leads to supporting internal audiences also.
You often need business/market expertise to challenge and to build a strategic comms and marketing capability.
Your marketing resource is often junior and deals with the day to day transactional work or non-existent.
You realise you can’t just keep delivering services in the way you always have and need some support in changing models of care delivery in a complex market.
You can’t afford corporate consultants to help shape your offer to maximise your ROI but need help in defining your business strategy, key messages, competitive positioning, market segmentation and growth opportunities.
You can’t afford to recruit a Public Affairs agency at London prices, but would like help to shape and influence policy and identify the right people to influence in order to improve your profile and standing in the competitive market in which you operate.
You haven’t the time to research the market but want someone with hands on, up to date expertise to help shape or direct your existing business development/marketing efforts and training programme.
The founder is currently leading the marketing and external affairs function and closely supporting business development opportunities for several different businesses, stepping in where no or limited marketing/business development resource is available in house or where the team is very junior.
