MHM were an invaluable part of our re-branding process, leading us through highly engaging workshops, helping us to better understand the essence of what we now call “RSNO-ness

Jane Donald, Director of External Relations, RSNO

Brand is not always about logos, graphic design or image. A brand is holistic: it is about who you are, your story, your DNA. Brands tell stories about provenance, invite audiences to affiliate, and build relationships. In short, a brand is a promise.

Successful brands are those that are able to clearly articulate this promise – and successfully deliver on it – each and every time someone comes into contact with it. Your brand is communicated through everything you do and by all those who represent you. It also underpins everything you do: it is a fundamental building block and a guiding principle in your development; giving greater clarity, coherence and focus to your activities and strategic development.

Our consultancy program involves a series of collaborative all-staff and one-on-one workshops that explore and articulate your brand from an internal perspective in order to create your own unique brand model.
