How we work

 

Step Change is a strategically led marketing agency. We’re facilitators and problem solvers who believe the best solutions in business start with marketing.

We always start by optimising and protecting the core before developing leveraged innovations and campaigns. To do this, we draw on tools from strategy, marketing, consumer behaviour, and behavioural economics (among others).
