We launch and improve street markets, create opportunities for businesses enterprise and build communication programmes to reach a wide range of stakeholders. Using a marketing-based approach we develop and manage projects in a no-nonsense, practical way making sense of disparate strands and bringing order to chaos.
We think of ourselves as place facilitators. We bring people together to change or improve their place ensuring the approach and outcome is tailored to it; it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach.
We identify stakeholders, develop an engagement plan (including comms) and the questionnaires and other tools that run alongside it. We work primarily with businesses from small to global multiples often via BIDs.
We’ve worked on markets extensively from setting them up from scratch to managing flourishing concerns. We also conduct reviews to identify improvements and offer advice on best practice.
We develop marketing plans, sharpen messaging and produce engaging content, to ensure your place campaigns are maximised to their full potential and to promote consultations, engaging the right audiences along the way.
We work on projects that support business recovery and reopening post Covid-19. From engaging with businesses to reviewing existing strategies and plans we reflect on changes that may be needed to help high streets thrive.
