strong proposition and the right design. The helped bring the brand to life - a brand magazine and promo materials
helped sell in to stakeholders. Beo* is now being launched in Denmark and across Europe.

"Ergo made a real impact on us. More a partner than an agency, they have worked closely with Speedo to help us analyse various brand parameters; from setting the vision all the way to how we take that vision to the consumer. They have a great expertise in unlocking the insight which really matter and helping the brand further its potential. It has been an absolute pleasure working with such a passionate group of people and I hope to continue the relationship."

"Ergo helped us explore, define and achieve success in new territory. They are brand pioneers with their feet firmly on the ground."
Phil Davies
Head of Brand Developement, Barclays Bank



"Stuart is a hugely personable man, who knows brand strategy back to front, yet puts it across in an understandable
and practical manner, bringing all levels of the organisation with him. He did not arrive will all the answers, rather
listened, questioned, and worked with an internal team to find the right answers, with a lot of fun and learning along
the way.  This really helped bring people on the journey. He and his team displayed impressive expertise in designing
and managing consumer research for us globally in a very cost effective manner - results orientated, not wedded to any
one framework or approach. His enthusiasm and wealth of industry examples was inspirational to the brand team and
all involved in our work to the point that many more people are now thinking "brand" now, regardless of their role. 
Great work by Stuart and team, thank you.”

thinker around brands. Stuart’s pedigree speaks for itself and his insights shape the success of Ergo who continue to be a
