  • Digital augmentation (Meta-verse)

    Digital innovation continues at a rapid rate. Block-chain, crypto, NFT’s, the metaverse, all represent opportunity; but not all of it is useful. We are working with organisations to plot a meaningful course through the bombardment of digital innovation.

  • Process optimization & redesign

    We help organisations find the inefficiencies and blockers in their processes and work collaboratively to redesign them in a way that optimises resource time and input. Removing unnecessary steps to create output focussed, efficient processes that support the objectives of internal functions rather than hinder them

  • Ethical brand positioning

    Ethical is the new carbon neutral; everyone wants to be it and everyone wants to talk about being it but if everyone says the same thing the meaning and value is lost in the noise. We are working with organisations to find new ethical brand territories where that distinguish them from the herd and give them a strong voice that resonates with their clients.

  • Climate change messaging

    Sustainability, carbon neutrality and climate change agendas are everywhere. We are working with organisations to make their climate change policies and the messaging that promotes them impactful and relevant to their customers and clients.

  • Change communications

    70% of change projects fail, not because of time or money but because of poor buy in, a lack of understanding and poor communication. We work with our clients to design communication plans that not only keep people informed and involved in ongoing change programs but turn them from sceptics and challengers to advocates.

Our clients are saying...

  • “D&F never answer a brief to fit their need, or specific set of skills. They are as curious to explore the right solution as us. They are always able to give us a view over the horizon and make us feel like we are market leading rather than just part of the herd. The final solutions very much feel like a client/agency collaboration rather than just the delivery of something. We also love the light bulb moments!”

    Sian Richards Head of Marketing EMEA, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
  • “Thanks to you and your staff for your unstinting efforts to get this engagement across the line. We’ve made staff aware of our new messaging and channels and have received some positive feedback already. It certainly looks like we made the right decision all those months ago to run with D&F.”

    Chris Burton Business Development Director, Tony Gee & Partners
  • “I value the honest conversations with Dangerfield & Fortune the most. I know I can rely on getting an honest opinion regardless of if it aligns with my own. Often it transpires that what I really need is not what I think I need! We’ve developed a deep sense of trust after working through both highs and lows together and hope to remain in what has become a long-term partnership.”

    Andrew Boyce Managing Director UK, ET Works
  • “Dangerfield & Fortune is a fabulous resource to employ, delivering excellent results time and again. With a depth of knowledge about media substantially beyond that of many agencies I have worked with, they developed elegant and creative solutions that enabled us to clearly articulate a deeply technical and strong message to our clients. They are also pro-active, regularly making further improvements and suggestions to refine our strategy.”

    Adrian Rimmer CEO, Gold Standard Foundation
  • “Dangerfield & Fortune are highly conscientious about the work they undertake. I found them to be professional, detail focussed and very efficient. The team produced innovative ideas and achieved great results.”

Rachel Colman

Managing Director

I trained as a biochemist, so having worked with the elements, I don’t easily accept that something cannot be done or there isn’t a solution. I further developed my career by reading law and now apply my clout as an experienced legal consultant to solve operational and process dimensions of a business challenge, looking for new angles or perspectives to deliver the best outcome.

Ian Thatcher

Director

I spent my early career in music production and art performance, where I learned how to manipulate technologies and media to create an experience. Since then I have worked on multi-media and marketing projects (start-up to bluechip) that have been experimental, new, or bold for the purposes of helping clients find new audiences and growth.

Jo Marsh

Associate

I provide brands with clarity and momentum, by asserting what they stand for. Extensive experience of developing brand strategies based in analysis and built on original ideas for clients in the cultural, design and visitor destination sectors. My approach focuses on motivating and empowering teams to harness the strategic value of brand and clarity of positioning, in order to engage audiences and customers, build profile and generate revenue.

Chris Matthews

Associate

I trained with Arthur Andersen before becoming Finance Director of a small marketing agency, which opened my life-long love affair with the front line of marketing, advertising, and PR. I became CEO of what grew to become Europe’s largest corporate PR business, before setting up my own top-10 specialist agency. Now I focus on marketing strategy, Insight and Challenger sales, and Board Level communications.

Paul Bramwell

Associate

I spent the first 12 years of my career in London working at both advertising agencies and media independents. In 1998 I joined McCann Erickson Birmingham as Media Director.  In 2007 I left to launched what is now MediaCom Birmingham building a team of 30 media experts and attracting clients across the travel, transport, automotive, home interest and FMCG categories. I bring to D&F a deep understanding of consumer behaviour and media consumption patterns helping us guide our clients to the most effective media solutions.

Alex Cowley

Creative

I used to sketch all over my exercise books as a kid in school, which naturally led to an education rooted in design. I then developed and honed my skills as web developer, illustrator, photographer and film-maker to become a rounded Creative. The common thread which weaves my career together is creating allure and real purpose within visual and digital communications.

Sarah Walker

Client Services & Marketing

I’ve spent my career devising and selling niche, complex IT solutions to corporate business. My achievement prior to D&F was working alongside the business-owner of rFpro, to deliver successful events that highlight the auto industry’s leading simulation software solution. I bring the ability to translate technical complexity and business challenges into something that resonates with target audiences.
