First things first

Purpose - Positioning - Narrative

In an ultra-competitive, global marketplace, what you stand for and how you position your company has never been more crucial. Our senior team is very experienced in helping define and express corporate purpose for some of the world’s most important companies.


On the back of a compelling purpose, clear, consistent, credible messaging is everything. Well-crafted and directed messaging plays a key role in setting up the business and its leaders for success.


Before working with an organisation's leadership to develop messaging, we undertake an in-depth analysis and review of plans, programs, and procedures. We produce responses that compellingly and accurately communicate and amplify the business proposition to all stakeholder groups.

Success starts from within

Positioning leadership

Leadership Counsel

An organisation’s reputation is embodied by its leaders. We work with senior management, across all disciplines, to help convey their expert leadership to all audiences.


We craft messaging to equip leaders in all situations. We then train them on how to deliver those messages in the most effective and compelling way, whether with the media or in meetings and presentations.


Our skilled trainers have delivered bespoke training sessions for hundreds of organisations across sectors and geographies. We also create and deliver programmes for individual leaders to position them positively with media, investors, regulators and business partners.

     organisation
