A commitment to deliver on our promise.

Our knowledge and experience as marketing consultants and accountability are at the forefront of how we perform for our clients.

Brand One has been working with Archon Legal since our foundation.  They have been integral in formulating our brand and our market positioning; taking it from launch, with the supporting marketing tools we needed, including the build of our website and sales collateral. In subsequent years, the team at Brand One have worked as our trusted outsourced ‘Marketing Department’ on a retained basis supporting our business development strategies providing advice, management of our content, online marketing and sales collateral. I have found the team at Brand One to be genuine leaders in lateral thinking and with that combined with an ever impressive turnaround time, we’re both well and truly on the same page.

Brand One has assisted the development of our profile portfolios, website, firm banners, AdWords campaign, client newsletters, firm information delivery, and a great deal more.  Our place on the ‘map’ is certainly far more prominent thanks to the Brand One team.

Simon Di Rosso, Director – Archon Legal.

“After over 100 acquisitions, mergers and divestments, Huhtamaki needed to redefine its Brand Identity to communicate globally with one voice. Maryanne Fernando was an integral part of the team in building the new identity and launching it both externally and internally. Internally, building the company’s new internal culture – our vision and our values, engaging over 16,000 employees across 36 countries. Externally, she was also a part of the same team in repositioning our new company across international markets. With her strategic vision, coupled with her hands on approach, Maryanne brought to our global team both brilliant ideas as well as pragmatic understanding of what works.”

“During the past years I have come to rely and trust One Consulting and in particular you, for your candid, and direct approach to handling me as a client and our business in terms of a strategy to build a strong brand as a boutique custom builder. With several personalities in our business and varying strategies you have maintained at all times a very professional, creative and practical approach to every task and request that has been asked of you. Your proactive ability to adapt and scale your business up and down as the task and budget requires, is, I believe a real skill and something every business would find extremely valuable, especially in these challenging economic times. I would have no hesitation in recommending One Consulting and in particular, you as a, ‘one stop’ marketing professional for any business. Thank you again and I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.”

“I have had some very positive remarks concerning our corporate image, including the website, business cards, colour themes on the stationery and our Oil Purification trailer. I am sure that this great response and the image that we portray is one of a professional and trustworthy company and effect the business we are now able to generate. This has been achieved to a large part, with you and your team’s guidance and expertise in the marketing field.

Working with Brand One was the best thing that we as a company could have done to increase our image and profile to enable us to start on the path of great success. Thank you very much for your time and I am sure that it will not be too long before we come asking for you to take us to the next level.”

“Brand One have been great in assisting us to develop a new identity and look and feel for the NRW brand. The Brand One team worked closely with my Business Development and Marketing team developing an integrated brand identity and supporting design and production of collateral such as our new website, capability statements and tenders submissions. They also worked with our HR and OSH teams in the production of recruitment campaigns, internal communications including newsletters, safety collateral and values campaign. They provided us with both strategic thinking and practical recommendations.”

“We needed to consolidate to a new and meaningful company name with a whole new identity with which to present ourselves professionally to the national and international markets. To bring this about we commissioned SURPASS Business Associates to assist us through the change. Maryanne Fernando led the team and with her experience, she worked with the Directors of our firm to explore appropriate options that would take our company forward into its planned future. SURPASS changed our company name, designed the new logo and a suite of new livery such as stationery and sales and marketing materials. SURPASS also engaged our staff internally through the formulation of a new set of Visions and Values that we could align ourselves to. We are a mid-sized company and needed a simple approach. SURPASS understood what we and our market needed, worked with us and delivered on time and on budget.”

Tony Sprague, Director – CNC Machinery.

“The Samaritans Crisis Line selected One as they were the only organisation who took the time to research what we do and tailor their services specifically to us and their genuine interest in supporting us as a not-for-profit.

They have been both patient in their understanding of how our organisation works and have undertaken some quality planning with us before we started on any work so we were very clear about the full range of suggested strategies, their timelines and costs – no hidden costs and no surprises. In all the design, marketing and website work, they have both carefully listened to and interpreted our briefs, as well as coming up with relevant new suggestions and changes. They also take the time to talk committee members through the rationale and thinking behind their suggestions so everyone understands and supports the changes.

I have recommended them to another not-for-profit organisation, which have also engaged them, and would be happy to recommend them again.”

Justin Colyer, Former CEO and Director – The Samaritans Crisis Line.

“I could never have guessed what impact you would have on our small business clients. The workshops developed for us have been a tremendous success, as they addressed the needs of the participants, provided practical solutions they could take back to their businesses and put into place and measure the results.
The small business sector is ever evolving, however all these businesses that come to SBCS have one common specific need – practical solutions. One Consulting successfully delivered this, the participants feedback says it all.
A big thank you to One Consulting for sharing the SBCS’s passion for assisting the small business community.”

David Morris, former CEO, Small Business Centre Stirling.

“Lease Equity engaged SURPASS to take on the Marketing function for two shopping centres under Lease Equity management. Maryanne and Emma have done an excellent job in managing the Marketing and promotions for both shopping centres. They have worked closely with the retailers and the Marketing committee to ensure their engagement in all activity. The teams that were put together by SURPASS for events were always excellent. The professionalism of Maryanne and Emma has ensured that the strategies formed were well managed, delivered on time and on budget. I would highly recommend SURPASS to any other company. Maryanne and Emma were both great to work with keeping us well informed at all stages of the promotion.”

Chris Whincop, Senior Portfolio Manager – Lease Equity.

Brand One has been a great support to our business and has provided us with strong marketing programs to support our growth. Over the past two years, thanks to Brand One we have developed a brand identity that I am proud of, as well as built stronger awareness of our story and our capability amongst key decision-makers across the market. The team at Brand One are great to work with. They provide us with not only fresh, new ideas to engage both our staff and our clients, but also back this up with sound strategic and commercial advice.

Warren Fair, General Manager – Action Drill & Blast

Reaching children from birth to five years and their families as well as six to nine year-olds, the challenges were to build the brand so that it clearly linked reading with literacy, gain greater state-wide community awareness of the importance of reading and literacy and engage multiple and diverse stakeholders including key project partners including the State Library, Rio Tinto, The Department of Regional Development and Lands, Royalties for Regions and Western Australian local governments. Other stakeholders included the Department of Health (health clinics), schools, public libraries, and working with families and communities in the metropolitan and regional areas to support literacy and learning.

Brand One embarked on a structured strategic process that commenced with the engagement of key stakeholder groups, gaining both valued input into the strategies, as well as building positive buy-in. The Marketing and Communications Strategy was built, backed by budgets and action plans to launch an integrated campaign that involved PR, events, general media and social media.

Brand One has been a key support to the Better Beginnings program providing us with both strategic thinking and practical recommendations.
