Tone of Voice

Inspire confidence with consistency

Those who define tone with clarity enable personality, trust, and affinity.

Dial your tone, from 1 to 5.

Just as our own tone adapts to our audience, we believe your positioning is best-rooted in audience needs and preferences, reflecting your brand, values, and purpose.

Our approach to defining tone of voice aims to empower, connect, and inspire your team, bringing deep insight and abundant energy. A leap away from the day-to-day.

Jump in at any of the 5 steps pictured, via 1 or more workshops. We love this process, and know you will too.

Positioning your success

Each of the following 5 steps has a workshop attached. We can combine workshops, or run as a single ‘Sprint’, delivering maximum value, in minimum time.

1. Audience

We review Customer, Employee, Stakeholder and Societal needs, values, and behaviours, as a base for understanding brand value and purpose.

2. Values

We compare the values of your people, customers, and organisation, highlighting gaps, -reviewing how values are lived, and externalising them to align to audiences.

3. Purpose

We believe purpose is about connecting your values, and commercial goals with genuine societal good, ensuring your audiences value your organisation beyond profit. We focus on short-term impact that corresponds with long-term vision.

4. Brand

We review your current brand positioning in light of steps 1 – 3, identifying gaps, revised positioning, and a roadmap to get there. We ensure a solid platform exists to facilitate an integrated tone of voice, ensuring all brand elements work in cohesion.

5. Tone

Equipped with audience insights, values, purpose, and brand positioning, we reflect brand personality as a consistent tone of voice. We’ll agree how to review effectiveness, and define how tone is flexed according to audience.
