We love collaborating with agency teams to deliver fresh insights, great ideas, and added value to client partnerships. Drawing on Jen’s years of experience in senior leadership roles at marketing, brand strategy, and research firms, our work with agencies includes:

  • Powering Project Teams. Whether acting as a front-facing extension of agency staff or providing behind-the-scenes expertise, we’re proud to have partnered with every type of agency—from boutique collaboratives to large-scale global firms
  • Qualitative Research. We’re passionate about helping clients better understand and engage their target audiences and love to augment agency marketing and communications solutions with new insights and perspectives. We offer a range of research solutions, including brand audits, in-depth interviews, focus groups, secret shopper programs, and competitor studies.
  • Marketing & Business Development Coaching and Training. Prior to founding Big Small Brands, Jen held VP of Sales & Business Development positions at three agencies in Los Angeles, so she is able to tailor her executive coaching, staff training, and business development action planning to the needs of growth-minded agency teams.
