Today’s customer has high expectations that are changing more rapidly than ever before. They expect a simple, helpful and consistent experience, from the first contact to exploration, post-sales consumption and support.
We're a strategic marketing and sales enablement consultancy that focuses on the customer experience at the points where value is created.
At the end of the day, it’s all about profitable sales growth. It’s easy to say and hard to do. That’s why we do what we do.
We use both sides of the brain
To engage your customer and answer your business challenge requires us to be both creatively inspiring and data-driven.
We’re different from typical marketing agencies. The combination of real-world commercial experience, strategic excellence and hands-on leadership means that we operate as a virtual marketing manager or as an extension of your team.
We align with your objectives, strategy and plan, and then execute. This means no more agency hand-holding and no time wasted. We’re a self-managed partner that is accountable for the results we deliver.
Whole of business context
Because marketing and sales strategy exists in a whole-of-business context, it has to be aligned with the resources and capability of the business. We build strategy on a foundation of operational understanding, ambition and creativity.
Sales pipeline confidence
In marketing and sales, measuring pipeline conversions provides supremely powerful data. Knowledge of conversion delivers a clear view of future business based on leads and fuels continuous improvement.
Enduring business benefits
Beyond the P&L, the value of a business is its value as an asset. Things such as intellectual property, process, systems, people capability and future sales visibility all add enduring business value.
The best of today’s technology is mature, accessible and uncomplicated. It unlocks new levels of efficiency, effectiveness and value-for-money from marketing and sales operations. We demystify ‘digital’ and build marketing and sales process automation with technology that:

"Poignand Consulting undertook initial research and helped to define our target audiences. They developed a communications strategy to meet them and a branding solution that positioned us at the forefront of our industry and our competitors. My sense is that Stuart really helped us understand our offer from a consumer point of view and the importance of identifying who we were trying to reach and how best to target our message. Stuart continues to be interested in the College and assists us with optimising our implementation of the strategy. The experience for us has been transformational. The advice and recommendations remain powerful three years after the completion of the work"
