WHO YOU WILL BE
Two highly motivated senior Brand Consultants who are widely experienced, have multi-comm disciplines expertise, have lived and worked in multiple international locations, are people-centered, are insightfully inquisitive, are highly pragmatic, are inherently passionate, are deeply involved, and who thrive on getting their hands dirty in the trenches of Strategic Brand Story™ development.
HOW A STRATEGIC BRAND STORY™ IS UNEARTHED, CRAFTED AND SHARED
Every brand, every organization-as-brand, has its own unique brand story, just waiting to be discovered by the brandstory's three stage process: Exploration, Imagination, Narration. A genuine competitive advantage just waiting to be revealed and exploited.
A PLUNGE INTO THE
We start with analysing all the existing information already available within the organization: documents, research, informative materials, past communications, websites, competitive info, etc… you name it. More importantly, we also talk with and listen to client management, staff and other stakeholders, both internal and external, to discover new insights and to make new connections. All are then documented by a written Exploration Summary Report.
THE BRIDGE BETWEEN
LOGIC AND EMOTION
We bring together the emerging common traits, anecdotes and “truths” to define / refine the brand’s strategy and its human face: in an original, credible, memorable, motivating and shareable narrative: your own brand story.
“REACH & FREQUENCY”
Sharing the new brand story with key internal stakeholders, subsequently and consequently motivating and empowering all your people to become storytellers themselves, sharing your, and their, brand story with their own personal, social and business-related networks.
