How are we different?


Honesty is in our DNA: we’ll tell you what we believe and we’ll treat you the way we’d like to be treated; curiously our clients tell us this is unusual.


We do what works – from experience. Our approaches are tried and tested, and the results speak for themselves (we can share details of our results).


We work to get inside the mind of prospects and go beyond the obvious: we hypothesise, we test, we review, we revise – then repeat.


We’re big into challenge, and we’re confident standing up and saying what we believe will work best for our clients – backed by evidence, where possible!


We always do the right thing by our clients; we’re focused on long-term relationships – not on short-term results and quick wins.


We’re ordinary people producing extraordinary outcomes for our clients, we speak plainly, directly – and with a refreshing candour.


“you’ve done what other agencies couldn’t; you’ve got us in front of the people we really want to work with”Founder, Brand Purpose Agency
“an uncanny knack of opening opportunities with new companies”Managing Director, Body Project
“You have been very refreshing to work with!”CEO, Web technology firm
“I like the fact that you’re very much part of our team…”Manager, Tech Company
“a major contribution to the subsequent growth of the business”Chief Financial Officer, ApotheCom ScopeMedical (The company sold following our work for an initial consideration of £4.6m)
“We’re delighted with the structured, involved and intelligent method of business development that you’ve delivered…”Marketing Manager, Software Company
“results have only been of the highest quality… I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”Director, GfK NOP (The fourth largest market research firm in the world)
“great to work with… and especially good at keeping a large number of lines of enquiry moving…”Francis Booth, Idea Junction (The people behind The Beatles website)

Meet the team

We’re a small focused team of dedicated individuals – we don’t outsource any of our work, ensuring quality of delivery throughout.

We work closely together as a team and in close partnership with our clients to leverage each party’s skills and knowledge – and to ensure we deliver value.

If you’ve any questions, we’d love to speak; we’re down-to-earth, normal people with (fairly) small egos.


Christina oversees all back-office functions in the business; she handles systems, contracts and any ‘legal’ stuff.

(She also makes a rather tasty cake on occasion)


Jon leads Business Development for our clients; he handles strategy and creates messaging and email that get engagement.

(He’s got 18 years of front-line cold calling under his belt too!)


Ricky manages our client accounts and telephone outreach; his ‘friendly’ reminders help keep us all on track.

(He’s a closet geek – but we don’t really understand it all.)



Joe works alongside Ricky on our client accounts; he also works with Justine on both Prospect research and administration.

(Joe has to watch his favourite TV shows – to avoid ANGER!)


Justine spends some time with us, the rest doing other almost-as-exciting things; since 2011 she’s overseen our research function.

(Justine can do some incredible things with paper and glue)


Mark is new – but soon he’ll keep all the administrative functions of the business on an even keel.

(Mark likes playing the guitar, mandolin, bass – the list goes on!)
