What we do

We help brands understand and, play into what matters to customers.

Our role is to ensure a deep, honest understanding of what matters drives strategy, brand and measures. 

We are experts in customers.

We help decision makers in brand, marketing, insight, customer and strategy functions improve customer and commercial performance.  Our role is to ensure what happens in the business is rooted in what matters to customers.

Our approach: Customer Consultancy
Customer Consultancy is based on a simple, powerful truth: brands achieve their ambitions by successfully delivering what matters to their customers.  This is the basis of our approach, which we summarise as:

Understand what matters. 
Align what happens.
Improve what results.

Our work, whilst varied, centres around enabling decision makers to:

1. Cut through to, prioritise and track performance against what matters.

2. Align strategy, brand delivery and measures with what matters.

We do this for a brand as a whole, or in a specific area, e.g. CEX, drawing on all sources of insight and infilling any gaps.  We have a particular interest in ensuring customer metrics, feedback systems, and tracking programmes are aligned – we know that what gets measured gets managed.

Sectors.

Our clients tend to be ambitious brands in B2C and B2B markets, and the public sector.  We work in the UK, internationally and, increasingly, globally across a wide range of sectors and markets.

Pushed, we would point to the following as our key sectors:

  • Financial services
  • Retail
  • Telecoms & Tech
  • Automotive
  • Travel & Leisure
  • Media
  • Utilities
  • Public Sector

One of the things we have realised over the years is that good ideas transcend market differences.  For that reason, whilst having Sector Leads for each of our key sectors, we encourage our people to work across sectors, so their learnings and thinking are transferred.
