Michael and Eleena together formed BrandWorks, with the single purpose of curating great ideas and people that will help realise your vision.
Michael brings with him over 20 years of experience, in brand, design, interiors, and concepts. He has worked with Fortune 500 companies from diverse industries, from cars to mobiles, beer to dairy and property developers to national franchise food brands. For him, the challenge is not the category you compete in, it's the consumer you wish to engage with. With a keen interest on consumer trends, behaviours and market insights, he works from the ground up with you, and believes that standing from behind the 'till' is still the best form of market or customer research any business owner can do for themselves.
