  • We know we need a rebrand, but we need some help writing a brief before taking it to tender.

  • We have commissioned an agency to rename us, but we’re now at a standstill as we don’t seem to be able to make a decision. We currently have twenty name options. How can we resolve this?

  • Our organisation is at a point where we need a rebrand, but we’re not quite sure what to tackle first and then how to prioritise everything else. How do we put a structure in place?

  • I’m heading up a new project in an area I’ve never worked in before. I need to create a public statement aligned with our company values and with the right tone of voice. I could do with some practice fielding tricky questions, so I don’t get caught out!

  • We’ve started a rebrand project in a rush, so there’s no real process. At the moment, it feels like we’re going around in circles. Can you help us get moving again – and possibly take over the project?

  • I recently joined a business steered on a traditional path, with organic growth and little marketing investment. Last year there was some money spent on marketing, but with no strategic plan in place, no KPIs and very little sense of our audience. The CEO was disappointed with the result and is now resisting further marketing investment. Any ideas on how to get him back on board?

  • Our service offers real potential for us to become the market leaders. Even though a rebrand might not be on the cards for 2-3 years, some brand development and marketing presence work must occur now for my business plans to work. Can you help?

  • We’re launching some new products and are struggling to determine how they fit our brand architecture. Can you provide some clarity around this?
