Brands we’ve grown

Our company values

Throughout our time together, we have become increasingly focused on the ‘why’ behind the brands we work on, and that’s why you’ll see our personal values shining through in everything we do:

We love to win

We love to win

We know that winning isn’t everything, but it’s pretty damn cool, and that’s why we’re tenacious about helping our clients win too.

We love to have fun

We love to have fun

Life is too short to take yourself seriously, so when you work with us, not only will we help you grow, we’ll ensure you have a bit of fun in the process.

Always act with integrity

Always act with integrity

Success means nothing if it’s not achieved with integrity and shared. That’s why we commit to working pro bono with a different charity each year and have partnered with Dementia Support, as our official charity.

Don't just take our word for it...

Don’t just take our word for it…

Chris delivered growth for us across multiple brands and multiple markets, combining his ability to apply strong strategic thinking, with his passion for leading and coaching others. He consistently got the most out of his team and our partner markets, ensuring they consistently had the insights and tools they needed, to activate maximum business growth.

Peter Hammarstedt, Managing Director of Carlsberg Sweden

As well as invaluable direction from Chris, in his capacity as a non-exec board Trustee, Jen has supported our marketing team in developing plans to grow awareness of the charity’s services and to increase our charitable donations. Prioritising the team’s efforts, the emphasis has been on the branding strategy, optimising the online customer journey and with the expert advice of Jerin, creating an engaging content plan.

Sally Tabbner, CEO, Dementia Support

Jen was with our company for eight years, responsible for the development and marketing of different French prestige perfume collections. She is very able and understands brands, always seeking out the best ways to market using a 360 degree approach, both above and below the line.  Her knowledge of all media national and social is also strong, enabling her to use budgets in the most resourceful way.  In our company she successfully rebranded an old product resulting in a significant market share growth.

Jen has a great smile and perfect communication skills at all levels of management.

Our marketing values

Throughout our time together, we have aligned on an approach to marketing that we have found achieves the sweet spot of effectiveness, efficiency and growth. These values shine through in every piece of work we do:

Fewer, Bigger, Better

We believe in interrogating every piece of activity in order to quickly understand what delivers the maximum return. Once we know that, we advise our clients to focus on those, in effect doing fewer things, but doing them bigger and better.

Insight and instinct

We believe that marketing is the art and science of encouraging customers to buy more. Data and insights are undoubtedly crucial to understanding the customer, but often it is the ideas and decisions that come from that, which produces the magic. We are grounded in insight and founded on gut.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime

Teach a man to fish

We believe in enabling businesses to grow through marketing, by developing a clear, actionable, no BS strategy, and in giving organisations the capability to implement, review and adjust their plans themselves. Of course if you would like our help on that too, we’ll happily oblige.

Our charity partner

Our close connection began with Dementia Support when Chris started to volunteer as a non-exec on the charity’s board back in 2018. The work the organisation does to support those living with dementia and their carers and family is so outstanding and is solely funded by donations, so it went without saying that they’d be chosen as Growth Animal’s charity partners, so we could continue to support their growth in awareness and charitable donations through marketing.
