“Verbalisation matters. Internally they helped us move from “functional utility speak” to “emotional conviction and benefits.” And our competition and customers noticed. Net Promoter Scores shifted from -22 in January 2016 to +4 in March 2017. What they gave us was more than a set of words. They gave us a new point of departure.”
Friso Westenberg — Head of Brand, Marketing Communication and Media at Nuon
“Verbalisation’s combination of psychology and marketing savvy is unique – and immensely effective. When they say they ‘sell victory,’ they mean it.”
Global Commercial Director and Deputy CEO, The Financial Times
“Verbalisation has enabled us to gain a unique insight in the psychology of our audience, understanding the role that we play in their lives and how best to invest in engaging our readers.”
Marketing & Sales Director, The Times & The Sunday Times
“We hope to inspire others to be creative, think critically, and make counter-narrative content too.”
Chairman, The Quilliam Foundation

Marketing Director, Standard Brands
