Financial Return - Philip Bateman and Bravo Charlie

Our best work is done with leaders that consider themselves proactive change makers, whose companies are at a tipping point, have strong offerings, and are ready to launch into the next stage of their greatness.

RECENT PROJECTS

Asked to create a great looking, compelling, consistent and semi-automated process for engaging Kilara’s existing and potential investors, we harnessed their position as leaders in Impact Measurement and the family office space to deliver remarkable results during their capital raise.
  • Delivery
  • Investor Engagement System™ – Tone of Voice guide, branding tweaks, video production, editing and platform design, social media content and calendar, website integration, email management optimisation, conference filming, campaign launch, follow up and ongoing support.
  • Audience
  • High net worth, sophisticated investors and family offices
  • Region
  • Predominantly Asia-Pacific

Philip and his team have built our Investor Engagement System based on a deep review of our strategy and consulting with our executive, and the results have been transformative. In the six weeks leading up to closing our $34M Growth Fund, we had over 4,300 individuals collectively spend 39 hours watching our new video content, and the feedback I’ve got from people in person and online has been very enthusiastic.

If you’re managing a fund or considering launching a new one, and wanting to know the best way to engage your stakeholders and potential investors, Philip should be your first port of call!

  • Audience

  • Region

RECENT PROJECTS

I first came across Philip compellingly presenting how video communication can be used to build and share powerful narratives at a major international water management event in 2020 – subsequently, I engaged him to build the logo, website, prospectus, and video communication for Circular360.

I was most impressed with his grasp of the finer nuances of story telling, visual communication, brand creation and the various technology platforms, and backed by his professional team, the output was of the highest quality.

RECENT PROJECTS

Stronger Brains empower children and young people to build better lives by measurably improving their brain health, through a program developed by internationally renowned neuroscientist Dr. Michael Merzenich, co-inventor of the Cochlear Implant. Bravo Charlie was engaged to develop and present a compelling pitch to National Cabinet, interviewing stakeholders in 5 countries, whilst modelling local, regional and national scalability of the program.
  • Delivery
  • Business plan, video platform with 80+ pieces of content, prospectus and pitch presentation
  • Audience
  • Prime Ministers Office, National Cabinet and Private Investors
  • Region
  • Australia

What surprised me was the quality of the team, the professionalism, the amount of hard work, and the willingness to invest in Stronger Brains. It was more than just a project, it was understanding the business and caring about the outcomes. There are not many companies we work with that really take on board our cause and believe in us, and go way above and beyond the call of duty. That was a very pleasant surprise, and the feedback on the final product has been excellent.

Often you arrive with quite complex stories. Philip has a great knack for making the complex simple for others. Terrific at pulling together vision, pictures, to match your complex story and simplify it. If you’ve got a pitch that’s meaningful to you, and you need help with it I would thoroughly recommend you speak to Philip.
