Here are some top quality people saying nice things about us.

Sift worked with RedRiverBlue to help us understand the opportunity around premium content and subscriptions. Stephen was engaging and insightful, using a combination of real world examples and data-informed thinking to help us navigate through various subscription models and strategies. The process was clear and purposeful, with a mix of workshops, research and creative thinking! It’s great to work with a partner that feels part of the team, going beyond the original requirements to deliver real value.

Kantar Millward Brown’s specialist B2B insight practice had ambitions to expand its offering and deliver faster growth by leveraging the reach and capability of the wider Kantar network. Stephen conducted a strategy review to identify the business opportunities and strengthen the offer to clients. He then worked closely with the team and key internal partners to shape a new plan and approach, and re-position the practice as a global centre of excellence for Kantar.

Following a series of acquisitions and growth across the business at Cogora, we needed to reset our business strategy and objectives.

RCNi has been migrating subscriber content from print to digital formats. Carolyn ran strategic workshops for senior publishing, editorial and marketing staff, reviewing best practice, and developing principles for re-inventing content for digital subscribers. Our teams now have a much clearer plan for digital content, and our subscribers have responded positively.

International Advisor is a niche B2B publication, and historically all its content was free to access. Carolyn led a strategic workshop for the senior publishing team exploring how to develop a registration wall, and she mentored the marketing team during implementation. The registered members section was a great success, and the team are now looking at paid subscription content.
