- Kristofer Åkesson, Founder & Managing Director
Consulting and advising in 3 different areas
Communication & Brand Strategy
What does your brand stand for? How and where do you talk to your audience? Who is your audience? What do they want to hear? And do you listen to them?
Communication is the backbone of all businesses and brands - and it needs a strategy, a firm but flexible one. Bold but easy to use. And it should make everyone involved feel and know better.
Let's create great communication, big or small.
Creative Business & Commercial Partnerships
How is your business going, and developing? Did it just start, or did it just... stop? Are there other partners or brands out there that can help, or that you can help?
Business is more than a good idea or product, more than numbers and hard work. It is also about creativity and new ideas, and constant development, change and adaption. Wether it's new features, new ideas, new technology, or new partnerships - maybe let other brands partner up with you so you can grow together in a project, or longterm.
There’s always more business to find, more value to create, and more fun to have.
Let's make 1+1 become more than 2.
What is the press saying about you? What do you want them to say? Are they saying anything at all? And what if they're asking or saying something you don't want them to?
Let's create good press together, finding and creating those messages and news angles that are valuable for both you, the press and the audience, and preparing for the potential invaluable messages - regardless if the audience is corporate or consumers.
