why we do it

The global shift toward city competitiveness is alluring, intellectually challenging and of profound importance to the next generation

In many cases cities are unprepared for the seismic re-alignment of the people industry and the the marketing they have to do to be attract the most appropriate citizens

Mass urbanisation, social, financial and technological disruption has greatly affected peoples’ decision making processes. These collide dramatically in determining where they live, study, work, visit and invest.

Cities are at the frontier of this century; competing in ways not contemplated before, making their propositions the most provocative and demanding of all current marketing challenges.

how we do it

We have developed a simple, not ‘simplistic, process where we focus on four fundamental issues

    • What the 21st century means to cities generally and the subject city itself
    • The key success factors required to participate effectively in the ‘people’ market
    • Determining what can be done and what constraints exist
    • Development and execution of an implementable plan
