"We were also aware of the limit of our internal capabilities, so we needed to find a partner that was willing to innovate with us – we spoke to many agencies; most were monolithic in their working practices. Janine was different. Jump in Puddles were simply motivated by our mission. This freed everyone up to innovate to a solution and work as team and avoid the usual limitations of a transactional business relationship.
Knowing who we are and being clear on our space, means we can look at the market objectively and not get stuck in the cul de sac of organisational doubt!"
