With Kennedy Woods’ experience of working with two of School for Social Entrepreneurs’ fellows – Change Please and Aerende – we were keen to enlist the team’s support in thinking through one of our own projects. We took them a project that has huge potential but which has been progressing at a snail’s pace over the past 12-18 months due to the relative complexity that the opportunity presents. What we needed was a helping hand to clarify what the opportunity was for us, why we might pursue it, who our customers would be and how we could go about piloting something.

In an afternoon we managed to establish clear answers to all these questions, and most importantly came away refreshed and energised for our next steps. Tom was able to master the subject matter effortlessly and steered us towards our goal with (seeming!) ease and good humour. We came away amazed with how much ground was covered, and also inspired by Tom’s facilitation techniques and the general creative atmosphere of the Kennedy Woods office. 

For a group of franchise CEOs who’re time-poor and rarely have the opportunity to come together physically we were a hard group to please. Tom and the team exceeded all expectations.

What Our Clients Say

“Tom and Chris partnered with Appear Here to bring our Space for Ideas competition winner's store to life.

They were great to work with – strategic in their thinking and great storytellers. They brought the Aerende store to life in a compelling way, which told the story behind the makers.”

Alice Ratcliffe
Head of Brand, Appear Here

“Working with Kennedy Woods to create Aerende’s  flagship store was a hugely positive and educational experience. They spent time learning about my brand, came up with interesting ideas, executed them within budget (and on time) and ultimately created an aesthetic that beautifully captured the brief. I appreciated their honesty about feasible possibilities and their creative solutions that enabled us to really tell the stories of our suppliers. Numerous customers commented on the look of the shop and expressed how impressed they were that it had been created so quickly and with such a good connection to our brand values”

 “As my single point of contact for the whole project, design through to build, Kennedy Woods mapped out the process in detail and have held our hands through it all the way. No stone unturned.”
