HOW WE HELP SOLVE BIG PROBLEMS
ONE TO ONE
We occasionally work on standalone projects that relate to one specific area or a cluster or areas where we can't resist what you are doing and are compelled by who you are. This might include brand strategy and identity, interior concept design, book design etc. If you have something exciting going on and want to talk it through get in touch.
The long read & the short game
We also write books about pharmacy to educate pharmacists and to educate the public about pharmacists. Oh and there are the card games because they needed to exist.
Visit our shop and bag yourself a book to explore topics in more detail or a card game to while away the hours.
Our deepest thoughts
If we can’t course correct how could we help others do it? I work with some great people. Real stars. Leading lights. Who set the sky on fire. But none of us get everything right. We are all fallible. Despite that. These humans who are set alight. Do have a tendency. To absorb others.
When something wears out do you replace it? In Summer 2019 I took a big step. I followed a life long passion. I went to climb some big hills. Not the biggest but big enough for me. The European Alps. Specifically Gran Paradiso. And then Mont Blanc. I was silly fit and daft strong. I like to prepare.
A simple question. Often asked. When first we meet. With new people.
Friends, colleagues, strangers. One of our favourites. Alongside ‘What do you do?’ But that’s another story. So, where do you live? There can be more to this.
How do we choose what to do? Asking good questions is a skill. In fact it’s a wonderful skill. Some might say better than having the answers. Answers are a kind of ending. They are full of finalities. Questions are a kind of beginning. They are full of possibilities.
OUR TOOLS ARE AWARENESS, EXPERIENCE, INSIGHT AND DESIGN.
OUR METHODS ARE CONVERSATION, PROJECTS AND PARTNERSHIPS.
We wrap around you, get to know you and help you get where only you are going.
As a team we cover a lot of ground. We understand healthcare, data, strategy, brand, design, creativity, marketing, economics, operations, sustainability, finance, experience and being the one with the ideas. It can feel pretty lonely having ideas. It doesn’t have to be.
The real magic happens when, together, we connect the dots. When we bring everything we have to bear. You and us. When we combine creative thinking with analytical thinking, navigating the twists and turns of understanding ourselves, our work and aligning it with the world.
This kind of approach isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s dynamic, fluid and creative. It takes courage to shoot for the stars. We work on a spectrum between creativity and stability. Starting with what’s new and building something that works. Sometimes over weeks, sometimes over years. If you want to make something just a little better then we probably aren’t the right people for you. If you want to try and create something never seen before, to really push the boundaries, then we might get on.
Don’t ask us what packages we do. We don’t do them. You are unique so our work with you will be just as unique. We don’t work with solutions because solutions are looking for problems. We work with ideas because ideas are opportunities. You can’t package ideas.
We are a small team with a lot of clout and we like to work with people that inspire us as much as we do them. We know when a project is good for us because we get excited. Things begin tingling. If, when we talk, you feel the same then perhaps we might be good for each other. If we don’t talk we’ll never know.
We’ve worked with solopreneurs, independent business owners, regional companies, national corporates commanding £100m plus revenues, pharmaceutical manufacturers, local organisations representing grass roots practitioners, national representative bodies who negotiate directly with the government and global organisations. If that sort of stuff impresses you give us a shout for a list.
Our founder and managing director, Gavin Birchall, is a pharmacist, strategist, designer, seeker and doer and ties everything together through experience.
When you are ready to go, get in touch and let’s see if we are to be part of your life. Working alongside people who spend a lot of their time doing this kind of thing can help you find the will, energy and momentum to make it all real. Speak soon.
