A Thought Leadership Agency

We are thought leaders earning our client’s business and trust by helping them overcome and solve their business challenges and problems. We act as their guide and help them navigate what is often a cluttered world in which their brand exists. Our belief is that outspending the competition is becoming more expensive and not a guarantee your message will be heard or even well received. In fact, research shows constant exposure could bore your audience and even irritate them, creating a negative impression of you. A better strategy is not to outspend the competition. A better strategy is to outthink the competition by increasing their engagement level with interesting ideas.

Our process to increase engagement starts first with learning and understanding the client’s audience. What are their needs? Wants? Desires? Secondly, we learn about and understand the client’s business. What’s their purpose? What are they selling? Why should their audience believe them? Finally, we align their audience with their brand to reach business goals to make them incremental revenue. We do this by creating engaging messages that will make even the most indifferent audience pay attention.

Our ‘thought leadership philosophy’ began back in 1971 with the renowned “Arrive Alive” campaign for the Florida Department of Transportation, which has set the creative bar for impactful drinking and driving awareness communications. In fact, this campaign has been adopted by states from across the country and is still being used today 46 years later.

Our capabilities span advertising, marketing, media, social, digital, public relations, research, and planning, driven by multi-talented professionals that hail from major creative agencies from cities nationwide. They have solved some of the most challenging marketing and communications problems for some of the most celebrated and recognized brands, including Aflac, Coca Cola, Club Med, Southwest Airlines, Absolut Vodka, and Marriott to name a few.

In the end, don’t hire us to do the expected, giving you the same expected result. Hire us if you want to find that one unique, engaging idea that launches your brand, and propels your business and your audience to a new level of existence.

That’s what we live for.

That’s what we can do for you.

Let us prove it.
