overview and principles
When professionals want to build influence and authority online or offline, they come to us. We have a phenomenal reputation for working hard below the radar, to get our clients above their industry radar.
Being a principle led business our life and work is built around the twelve following pillars:
01. Identity is everything
Our inner identity matches our outer image as our reputation and brand depend on it.
04. data driven
Numbers never lie – organisations that gather and interpret information properly are more likely to succeed. Marketing is always an experiment and we have the tight controls to monitor what works and what doesn’t…quickly.
07. learn by doing
We learn by our mistakes – we do more, we learn more. We are experimental and curious by design and learn from doing.
10. keep it real
We recognise that what got us here, won’t get us to where we need to be. We keep things real and start afresh after every success.
02. ALWAYS CURIOUS
Curiosity and creativity are inextricably interlinked. We explore the uncomfortable and are happy to be slightly vulnerable.
05. be brave
Bravery is a sign of good leadership. We therefore build in bravery to our work. Courage over comfort, bravery over fear, ‘done’ over perfection.
08. mandatory extra mile
Doing beyond what is expected is mandatory. Where we can add more value, we do!
11. build meaningful relationships
We build relationships with meaning and purpose & where we can add value to them. Relationship first and foremost..
03. EQUALITY IS CORE
Equality is at the core of our business, and it is our duty to call out prejudice and bigotry wherever we see it.
06. admit, fix and learn
We don’t get it right all the time. When we do get it wrong, admit it, fix the problem, and learn from it.
09. no integrity slippage
We say what we mean and do what we say, when we said we would do it and in the way we said we would do it.
12. plant trees whose shade we will never see
We add value and not just to those who are likely to repay it. We believe that building a legacy personal brand means serving a wider following.
