Testimonials from our clients
Our clients are why we exist. Here’s what they think of us – in their own words.
“Brand by Me are great to work with and Collette is exceptional in her direct approach and her expert relevant knowledge. She really gets to know your organisation, guides you through a process in which your team learns and develops but more importantly your team co-designs and owns the work. I’ve loved working with Brand by Me, as Collette’s energy and commitment to help drive organisational change is truly infectious”
Pearl Saadi – Director of Communications, Guy’s & St Thomas’ Foundation
Working with Collette Philip, founder of Brand By Me and irrepressible campaigner to facilitate this timely conversation was a delight. Collette brought us expertise, connections, and passion, allowing CharityComms to focus on convening our community and making sure the event experience was as enriching as possible. Being able to work in partnership on something that matters to us all is a great thing and something we hope the whole sector will embrace doing too.
Adeela Warley, CEO, CharityComms
“We’re definitely not finished with Brand by Me. We will absolutely be working again with you in the coming year.
Collette supported us to think about how we can build anti racism into the Young Scot brand. Collette reviewed, our content, and our comms and challenged us so strongly not to reinforce a colonial narrative and made it clear that our anti racism work can’t just be one month of Black History Month. And what we learned from you so much is that this work has to be consistent, has to be genuine and as an organization, we have to and we will continue to face some hard truths, recognize them, and most importantly, address them as we move forward.”
Hilary Kidd, Smart Services Director, Young Scot
“I really appreciate how you’ve facilitated us and kept us on track. Just to reiterate again how well the way you have worked with us and facilitated the workshops has enabled us to revisit and refresh our branding and also our approach to our strategy. The two have aligned really well, which was what we had hoped for but I was struggling to envisage how we would get there. Your approach helped to really draw out valuable ideas but also demonstrate the degree of alignment within the organisation.”
Jane Hughes, Chief Executive, Mental Health Matters
“Before working with you, our branding/messaging was inconsistent and did not clearly represent our organization’s mission or work. The stakeholder feedback was very helpful. I like how our team was guided in developing our own branding, based on feedback and with your guidance but still authentic. I enjoyed the experience very much”
Nina Jackel, Founder and Director, Lady Freethinker
“We’re quite a complex organisation and the sector itself is quite complicated but Brand by Me managed to dive straight in and really get the organisation, which instilled a lot of confidence with colleagues. The process with Brand by Me has been invaluable in showing us how we’re different and the value we add.”
Sarah Bradford, Head of Communications at Conciliation Resources
I had worked with Brand by Me before in two charities and saw how effective, pragmatic, people-savvy and cost effective you were in delivering all things brand. We had some answers, but we needed the framework, coaching and workshopping approach you bring and lead so well to get the answers out on the table, ordered and implemented. You forced the pace when we all know organisations tend to navel gaze sometimes. And that’s why we hit our deadlines. We now have a clear and strong brand that we have confidence in – from Trustees through the senior management team, managers and staff as well as the people we help who all contributed to the review.”
John Trampleasure, Director of Fundraising & Communications, RAF Benevolent Fund
“The best thing about Brand By Me’s approach that it is very high energy, very supportive, very fun. The session flew by – we did 2 sessions and I was looking forward to the first one but I was impatient for the second one.
I could see the progress we were making and it was exactly what I wanted and so was extremely happy. I love how positive and smiley and upbeat the whole atmosphere was. I really loved it. Honestly, fantastic!”
Thad Cox, founder, Thad Cox Branding Studio
“A great way of approaching personal brand development with some great outcomes that were visible on the day”
“We don’t spend enough time thinking about ourselves and it was nice to stop and have the time to do this”
Personal Brand Workshop Attendees, Sodexo
“As a small, grassroots organization it is so very important that Global Girl Project is able to tell our story in a clear, succinct and inspiring manner and in working with Danielle we have been able to achieve just this!! While working with Danielle I truly felt that she understood the mission and passion behind our work and that she knew exactly how to help us to share that with our supporters around the world! I am so grateful to have been able to be a client of Danielle’s and know that her work will help to catapult us to the next level!”
Julia Lynch, Founder, Global Girl Project
“ABC Life Support is my baby. I’ve worked hard on every aspect of its development over the past eight years but until I used Brand by Me I never really understood its potential.
Thanks to their knowledge and passion, I now know my brand inside out, back to front and top to bottom. I know where it came from and I know the direction that we’re heading and that feeling is priceless. I loved the workshops and the ongoing support that I get is very comforting. I have a brand consultant behind my brand, one who I trust implicitly and who I know has our best interests at heart. This whole experience has been, hands down, the best investment that I’ve put into my business.”
Danielle Bridge, CEO and Founder, ABC Life Support CIC
“With tight timescales, we were looking for a highly practical and tailored solution which would bring our brand to life and devise a clear action plan for moving it forward. Brand by Me ensured we remained focussed throughout and maximised every opportunity for stakeholder engagement (internal and external) to inform the development process. They were a pleasure to work with and delivered a strong brand framework for us to take forward as we develop our three year strategy.”
Charlotte Lore, Head of Digital, Media and Marketing, Ambitious about Autism
“Thanks to your skillful facilitation and lightning-fast synthesis, we not only developed what we needed for the Re-Positioning exercise, but we also gained a greater team awareness of PIDG’s goals, challenges, and opportunities.”
Communications Manager, Private Infrastructure Development Group
“We only have the amazing brand we have today because of Collette’s brilliance and tenacity – her phenomenal strategic brand expertise and her quick thinking, robust rigour, creative skills and huge vision. It is a unique combo and why Brand by Me, stands out in a crowded agency sector.”
Pippa Rodger, International Director of Marketing and Communications, World Animal Protection
