your industry, a people-friendly business is about to turn it upside down.
No one ever sees the challenger brands coming, but they always do. And they’re always more people-friendly than those who’d previously reigned king. (Think Netflix over Blockbuster, Dollar Shave Club over Gillette, and so on. Will you be next?)
We believe people-friendly success stories take more than the 30,000-foot expertise of consultancies and more than the 1,000-foot campaign executions of ad agencies. You need to leverage the 29,000 feet of opportunity between the two.
The Variable bridges this gap to exact growth.
