The co-founders, Stacey Danheiser and Simon Kelly have been in your shoes. We have a long track record of leading marketing at blue chip organizations in the telecom, cable and financial services industries. After witnessing all of the time wasted on creating marketing and sales programs, campaigns and content that just doesn’t produce results, we started SHAKE Marketing Group to help organizations bring the focus back to the customer.
We understand that it isn’t easy to achieve internal alignment, which is why we are fanatical about running programs that aim to create cohesion amongst sales, marketing and product organizations. We have successfully developed and implemented customer value programs that forced a major shift in thinking and prioritization. We draw on the best work from academia and practice to provide creative growth solutions.
Our goal is to create an experience that provides only actionable advice and recommendations (no unproven theories or impossible-to-execute ideas).
We are well informed by leading academic and commercial research, and through our own experience. We like to immerse ourselves in our clients’ world and engage with their teams. We can be controversial and irreverent if it helps moves you forward – and – dare we say, fun.
