What our Clients say

Gumtree

"Colin is an absolute delight to work with. His industry knowledge and business ethic is impeccable. He took the care and time required to understand our business needs and provided the right amount of guidance and support. I never thought you could turn a creative pitch around and appoint an agency in a month... but we did!"

Sara McConkey,
Head of Marketing
Gumtree



David Jones Limited

"We worked with Colin over a six month tender process to find a new creative agency, leveraging his diplomatic style, expertise and market knowledge to arrive at a fantastic outcome for all involved. Colin became a trusted partner on both the client and agency side of the pitch and executed every step of his phased approach with fairness, transparency and genuinely helpful and credible input. Working with Colin we felt that he was seeking the best fit for both parties and he sought to assist with either subtle or firm advice depending on what was required at the time. Colin continued to follow up with us both during and post pitch with relevant and encouraging information. Colin operated well at all levels of our business with his professional and strategic approach."

"Colin Wilson-Brown is fantastic! This is the third time The Smith Family have used Colin and his services (twice creatively, once in social), and with each of those projects the process and outcome have been seamless and successful. His expertise and approach make the agency search process an enjoyable one - which is a testament to his professional manner and leadership. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone thinking of work in this area."

He ran a completely professional and painless process to search and select our new Australasian media, creative and digital agency partners. His knowledge and contacts in the industry, coupled with his thorough and consultative approach ensured we got the best result possible. Ours was a complex pitch both from a requirements standpoint and also because of the transparency required, but Colin handled it expertly. On top of this he was a real pleasure to work with. I would certainly use him again and would highly recommend him."
