What we do and how we work
Our competencies and experience allow us to be in a position to share the vision of business leaders and come up with a plan of implementation which we co-ordinate internally by working with the organisation’s management team, mentoring marketing executives within various companies and co-working with marketing executives and members of family businesses as the case may be. We believe and we have proven success that, when a marketing plan is incorporated into the overall business plan, it contributes to effectively attain business objectives. We make efficient use of company resources and get them to benefit from the synergies they deserve.
Experience shows that almost every business applies marketing initiatives and have some of their human resources performing marketing tasks. Very often the marketing function is complemented with the use of marketing communications, digital and related services. Over the years, we found that companies benefit from co-ordinating their marketing functions internally and having them bridged with external providers.
For marketing communications, we work with the company’s agency and suppliers. We also have a pool of resources to be able to service organisations which do not have an agency, or to meet particular objectives. We are also well networked within the marketing scene with marketing bodies and service providers, the media and related stakeholders within the profession, both in Malta and beyond its shores.
We deliver results because we have a great dedication and sense of service.
We bring our experience, competence and effectiveness from a career spanning over 25 years of senior strategic experience, contributing to board meetings.
