A few words from our clients
Our team knows that when it comes to execution it’s not just the details that matter, it’s the ability to plan, to pre-empt, to be informed, to take ownership, to have a global understanding of the space and to think beyond the here and now.
We value collaboration, partnership, and doing an exceptional job every time. But don’t take our word for it; this is what some of our clients have to say:
Sprout was recommended to me after 5 frustrating years of unsuccessful attempts to find and work with marketing advisors who were capable of:
• Approaching the brief strategically
• Working as part of our team to build a strong brand personality
• Tailoring their approach to our specific market
• Being flexible with changing priorities
• Committing to outcomes from proposed brand and product campaigns
From the outset Sprout understood where we wanted to take the brand. Kaye asked the right questions, recognised the gaps and the opportunities. Working with Kinc Agency, she implemented a two-day brand strategy workshop during which our senior team gained an insight into the fundamentals of brand development and an understanding of the importance of brand across all aspects of our business and culture.
Given the initial cost my expectations were high; the resulting work did not disappoint. Our brand architecture is strong and our brand campaigns are strategically driven and achieve excellent results from a business and ROI perspective. Over the last 2 years our business has grown above system, our brand surveys confirm strong brand recognition & alignment and our share of market has increased.
Sprout is on a monthly retainer and works closely with our marketing team to ensure our marketing and communications are strategically robust, remain wrapped in the brand and, continue to grow our business. We now view Kaye as part of the BDCU senior team.
I am more than happy to recommend Sprout as an excellent partner who provide great value for spend.
Jan Edwards, CEO, BDCU Alliance Bank
“Today it is hard to find someone who gets business, brand, strategy, teams, promotion, culture and all that goes along with it. Based on Kaye's background, experience, and calm, thoughtful demeanor, it makes the talent she brings to the table very unique and valuable. It's also nice to work with nice people. With Kaye and Sprout you get the whole shebang.”
Gary Bertwistle, Speaker and Author; co-founder Tour de Cure; founder 6Strings4Cancer
“I have worked with Kaye for over fifteen years across a range of businesses and projects. She always adds enormous value, provides sharp insight and has the energy and attention to detail to get the job done. Her business acumen, intellect, extensive marketing, brand and management experience, coupled with a great sense of fun, integrity and professionalism have made every engagement a pleasure.”
Sean Clancy, CEO, Transfusion
“I have worked with Kaye on multiple projects for over 12 years. Kaye is a true professional and always full of great ideas. She excels at whatever she puts her mind to whether that be running a large marketing agency, staging national consumer promotions or writing personalised copy for a website. Always honest and full of integrity I would not hesitate to recommend Kaye and her agency to anyone in need of her vast talents.”
Anthony McDonough, Creator & CEO, Lqd Skin Care
“I have had the pleasure of working with Kaye on many marketing projects and assignments. She demonstrates and delivers strong insightful thinking that generates sound strategy to improve consumer engagement and connection. She does this in an extremely considered and professional manner. She is an asset to any client brief.”
Craig Murphy, Marketing Director, former FMCG client.
“If you want an agency that knows marketing, brands and people and how to pull it all together you can’t go past these guys. Over many years and across a range of projects, from major national marketing initiatives to corporate positioning, Kaye has demonstrated great capability, a strong understanding of the space, is always inclusive and professional. The size of the project doesn’t matter, what you get is a great job, on brand and delivered on time.”
Adrian Davidson, Managing Director, Inck Merchandise.
“We have retained Sprout over several years to provide brand strategy, campaign development and marketing support. The results that have been achieved are excellent. Kaye’s grasp of brand strategy, depth of marketing experience, personable nature and ‘can do’ attitude have enabled us to deliver a marketing and communications strategy that delivers against business objectives while building brand equity with members and our communities.”
Ross Stone, Manager Market Communications, BDCU Alliance Bank
"I have worked with Kaye in two capacities over the past 2 years - one is as a mentor and the other as a copywriter.
Kaye was a huge support to me during a transition phase in my career when I was looking to make the leap from Group Account Director to General Manager. She met with me regularly and provided guidance in understanding the requirements of the GM role and was a supportive sounding board for me during this time. I found we were able to identify any gaps in my experience and make a plan for bridging the gaps to ensure I could deliver effectively in my newly appointed role as GM.
From a copywriting perspective Kaye has worked with Metropolis regularly over the past 2 years to deliver across all of our clients in various capacities from copy refinement, to conceptual campaign headlines, to long copy for brochures and websites. On all briefs we find Kaye to be thorough in clarifying the brief, reliable in the quality of copy and incredibly responsive to the needs and directions of our clients. We are often briefing her on jobs that require a quick turnaround due to the nature of the property market and Kaye has been able to respond quickly each and every time."
