Brand Strategy

Transform Your Brand for Greater Impact & Connection

In August of 2019 the Business Roundtable, a group of nearly 190 CEOs of some of the largest U.S. companies, signed a statement on the purpose of a corporation. They proclaimed that businesses exist for more than mere profit—that customers, employees, suppliers and community weigh equally with profit.

These leaders have recognized that purpose-driven brands are actually stronger in the marketplace, that they grow faster and engender more brand loyalty. As an example, Unilever announced that their 28 Sustainable Living Brands have grown 69% faster than the rest of their 400 brands.

The challenge is, how to transition organizations that have been run on a financial model of profit first for so long that it’s engrained in the fabric of a company. The answer is to begin with the brand. To transform the brand by finding and articulating a story that is authentic and real, and speaks to the essence of what a company truly stands for. Then to align its marketing, its communications, and its culture around the new brand story and values.

This is our special sauce, our uniquely valuable service of helping companies discover their authentic story and deepen their purpose. We help organizations bring their brands to life through a deep process of organizational discovery. Our process is both challenging and enjoyable, and leaves you with a strategy that will serve your organization for years to come.
