    Operations Design

    Defining optimum operating models and ways of working fit for the modern marketing era.


    As the influence of marketing expands so too does the set of capabilities required for marketing excellence. New capabilities bring new relationships and ways of working both inside the organisation and with external agency partners.


    We've designed a diagnostic review that serves as a foundation for building the best marketing system, combining both internal and external capabilities.


    Once the operating model has been agreed we work with brands to establish the right working cadence to ensure high performance outputs are delivered throughout The Marketing Village.

  • Partner Management

    Management of a progressive, end to end process to find the perfect blend of internal and external capability.


    Finding the perfect blend of agency partners is fundemental to building a progressive marketing capability. However, the agency pitch process has remained largely unchanged for the last 20 years, resulting in the average client-agency relationship dropping to under three years.


    We take a unique approach to partner selection; one that helps liberate the best talent, at the best agencies, to do their best work.


    Beyond the pitch process, Tumbleturn has developed frameworks to help improve existing ways of working between marketer and agency.
