We are activists for good by profession, and artistes or creative performers, by design. Our name, ACTIVISTE, epitomizes our goal to influence business and organisational change in a strategic, creative and inspiring way.

COLLABORATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING

We believe that activism can be a powerful transformation strategy for brands who want to make a difference: This can be through better differentiation and relevance, or just better business.

Activism is also about galvanising organisations by focusing on culture, purpose and performance; by inspiring them to be their best selves. Ultimately, we see our role as equipping and inspiring clients to have impact.

Aside from our commercial work, Activiste works with VWO’s and social enterprises on a low-bono basis to enhance their “multiplier effect” through sharper strategy, design and ultimately, better business.

PRACTICE

Activiste is a multi-faceted consultancy focused on orchestrating change for businesses, and within organisations.All our programmes are customised to suit specific client needs.

OUR PRACTICE IS UNIQUE

It focuses on building rapport in the relationship and solving problems along the way, rather than being process-driven. It is truly customised to address specific client needs and issues, although tried and tested models and disciplines are applied. 

 

Working through a collaborative network of strategists, researchers, designers, communicators, and functional specialists, we seek to recast the work of strategy as a rich, people-centered, and results-oriented activity that is both analytical and creative.
