Is your business
ALIGNED & INSPIRED?

If not, you'll want a brand strategist on your side.

One with the depth & breadth of experience you need.

Businesses with well-defined brand foundations that are aligned across the WHOLE business (not just Marketing) are proven to be better at attracting talent, engaging clients, fuelling innovation and driving growth.

When to call me...

Whenever there is change - whether real or desired.

Big Picture Perspective

So, what does a brand strategist even do?
(spoiler alert: I don't design logos)

I help businesses to DEFINE their core foundations, addressing the big questions about a brand's direction, connection, impact & value.
This strategy is
the hymn sheet that the whole business sings to

 

Then I help businesses to ALIGN their people, processes & product development behind this strategy, so they can INSPIRE all key stakeholders - both internal and external.  

 

Your brand isn't just about what people know or think about your business, it's about how they feel about it too. 
 

I look at the relationships between your business & its audiences (both inside and out), its ambitions, goals, business model & market, its competition & opportunity to stand out & claim a territory.

Strategic

I provide solutions that go beyond marketing to impact the whole business - Purpose, vision, mission & values; brand scope, scale & structure; team culture, stakeholder engagement & messaging.

Relevant

I use strategy to tell stories - replacing dull jargon-ridden language with concise, compelling solutions that teams, partners and suppliers can relate to, embrace, adopt and advocate.

Storytelling

Clients

Multi-sector Experience

I've worked with clients of all sizes and sectors in Europe, Asia & the US.

The brands shown here have all commissioned me independently - they represent retail, professional services, entertainment, finance, technology, property & education. If you'd like to see more, I've also got 15+ years of international agency clients to share. Whatever your sector, I'll get to grips with it in next to no time.

Work with me

Rachel Vigers Brand Strategist Headshot

I balance big picture thinking with pragmatism and pace. I believe in process that is due, not over-done; in paying attention to detail without getting lost in it; and in never compromising on professional standards.

 

My way of working is also deeply co-creative. If you want a consultant who'll just whisk your brand challenge away and hand it back fixed, that's not me.

 

But, if you'd rather have an expert, thought-through response with a sleeves-rolled-up, "we've-got-this" vibe, then I'd love to talk...
