Here’s why we exist

When you feel clear about what you’re doing and how to do it, the world seems vibrant. You take a step, you put something into the world, and the world notices. Every public action you take seems to open doors you didn’t even realize were there. This is what we try to do at Mighty Jungle. We try to get you, and perhaps your brand, moving by helping you work out what’s in your head so you can get out of it. We do this with business leaders, marketers, and agencies.

Executive social posts

We believe people and companies succeed because of who they are - not in spite of who they are. It’s an obvious thing to say but it’s not an obvious thing to do. And while we’ll insist on foraging around the world and talking to your customers, we’ll also dig into you and we’ll pull out what’s beating at the heart of your company. �You know that scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? Yeah that.

“How do I express my brand?”

Elizabeth Lukas�CEO, Decoded, Americas

"The marketing lion that is Pollard definitely does not sleep at night. �His brain is not a quiet village."

Mark Cripps�CMO, The Economist

“Mark catapulted into our world at Twitter Next with a relentless curiosity - quickly gaining the trust of our team, and pushing us to think outside of our comfort zone. He left our imaginations stretched, and our brains forever poked.”

Alex Josephson, @ajos

Global Head of Twitter Next

We can apply frameworks and techniques from Strategy! The Workout and teach your team along the way.

Careful. Tricky question. Workshops are a great way to get everyone on the same page but, having run hundreds of them, they are often best used as part of a broader strategy and creative process. Otherwise, they can feel like false starts or politics or hanging out or a subjective battle of wits. �A small team needs time before and after to reflect and improve the thinking.

“How do we get good thinking fast?”
