Crimson Sunbird

The crimson sunbird (Aethopyga siparaja) is a species of bird in the sunbird family which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time.

When I moved to Singapore I wanted to create a small nimble company that would offer simple advice, consultancy and digital training as needed.  We take on small to medium sized projects directly and through Hyper Island.  One day we will be helping an FMCG company with their digital marketing strategy and the next we’ll be running a workshop on analytics or Jobs To Be Done for an advertising agency.

Singapore is such a great place to be based because of the network of other experts, artists, educators and technical people around us and Crimson Sunbird feels a lot more able to change and adapt than larger agencies back in London.

We’re particularly keen on projects that ask us hard questions and in helping clients explore the answers together with the journey being at least important as the product.

Here are a few of the recent projects we have undertaken:

  • Providing ecommerce advice to a regional retailer and guiding an implementation project from start to finish
  • Supporting a well-known brand in the development of more Agile ways of working as they design and build a marketing command centre
  • Exploring cognitive community opportunities for another big organisation
  • Running workshops, mentoring hackathons and supporting a cross company “culture jam” for one of the regions largest banks
  • Working with Board Level decision makers to help them understand digital and helping them make things themselves
  • Exploring digital culture and leadership with government civil servants

If these sound like the sorts of things that you are looking for someone to do especially if you are based in South East Asia then get in touch.
