Invite me to a brainstorm, or brief me, and I’ll give you a great idea, either through working with your team or by collaborating with an outside creative. Whether you’re trying to solve a problem, address an opportunity or expand your market, a simple idea cleverly executed can popularise an issue, change public perception, challenge dominant thinking, or raise lots of money.
PLOT A STRATEGY
I’ll work to put flesh on the bones of the idea, delving deeper into the detail around the idea before plotting out a strategy for its development and implementation.
While not an essential ingredient of successful campaigns or opportunities, celebrities can take great ideas to another level. I’ve found that celebrities are attracted to great ideas and so, where appropriate, I will try to seduce the right actors, musicians, artists, writers, directors, fashionistas or sports personalities to participate in the idea and support your cause.
Corporates, much like celebrities, are enticed by great ideas too, and can be a very powerful component of a great idea and successful strategy.
GATHER THE TEAM
There’s no one-size-fits-all. Building the right team that is motivated by an idea depends on your needs and the scale of your campaign. We could either harness the strengths and skills of your own team, keeping costs down and allowing them to ‘own’ the idea, or I will recruit expert collaborators to help with particular aspects.
OVERSEE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CAMPAIGN
Once the strategy is agreed and the team is built, CC will oversee the implementation of the campaign, taking you from idea generation, through strategy development, to campaign implementation in a cool, calm, collaborative and, ultimately, highly effective and successful process.
