Position your Purpose

Align with Audience Values

No matter your pursuit, sustained success demands purpose beyond profit.

We reveal what truly motivates your customers, stakeholders, and employees. When purpose aligns, success means more; the most engaging content; the most meaningful rewards.

Our approach | Your purpose

Below is a typical approach we use to defining and positioning your purpose beyond profit. Our actual method is flexed to the unique needs of your organisation and audiences.

  1. We conduct a value audit among your target audiences to reveal who they are as people, beyond age, gender, and postcode. Audiences might include stakeholders, customers, or employees.
  2. We apply behavioural insight to determine how personal values might be applied when engaging with your products or services.
  3. We review your market, including its future pathways.
  1. We review your existing ESG strategy and documentation, adding fresh insight and audience perspective.
  2. We audit your organisation’s values, getting to the heart of how they’re lived day in, day out.
  3. We design and run workshops to inspire and energise your purpose beyond profit.
  4. We position your distinct purpose and values among your competition, in a way that aligns with and compels target audiences.
  1. Once your purpose is positioned, we build an action plan full of uniquely engaging activities and content, which energises employees, stakeholders, and customers around common goals.
  2. We capture stories from your actions and intent, devising and crafting meaningful, sought-after, and trusted content.

Add meaning to your content, and inspire action

Values mean more than demographics

Whilst postcode might tell us something about average affluence, family size, or age, it is most useful as a ‘first sort’ when selecting target audiences. When it comes to captivating content, it is who we are, not what we are that matters most.

If values are poorly defined, or are not aligned with audiences, it is hard to sustain an honest and meaningful connection beyond product, price, and promotion.

Our values

We believe values are at the core of your brand’s purpose and personality.
Our values shine through everything we do.


Our belief is contagious. We up the energy, believing in the possible, adapting and optimising as we go. Need a boost…give us a call!


Words without empathy are 2 dimensional. Through insight we add depth to our content, matching audience needs and values.


Without dialogue, there is only monologue. We believe the value of communication is not in what we say, but how it is received.


We believe great content should correlate with empowered audiences and measurable impact. .

Helping others

Need a fresh perspective? Deadlines looming? We believe life is more interesting and has more purpose when helping others. We’re here whenever you need us.


We act in respect of the world around us. Long winter walks. The food we eat. Ocean swims. We balance our need for income with our need for nature, balance, and wellbeing.


Words unto themselves are little more than lines of ink or lead. Our craft starts and ends with the people who receive and exchange them.


We value a smile, a chuckle, and the odd adventure too. We take our work seriously, offering a human approach, and plenty of fun along the way.

Profit is not the purpose of a business, but rather the test of its validity.
Peter Drucker
