I can't even express to you how thrilled you will be that you were lucky enough to stumble upon this company.
“If you've been lucky enough to get a proposal from this company, don't even bother looking at anyone else. Because it probably means your business is destined to be successful. Furthermore, if you follow what they tell you to, you have no choice but to be hugely successful. I thought I wanted the traditional 'do my SEO, tell me how to create email marketing, and social media strategies’ etc., but what I got was SO much more than I could ever have anticipated.
Alexander is a true professional. I doubt you'll ever meet another marketing strategist who is as passionate, committed and thorough as he is. He takes the time to get to know your business. He will tell you straight what you need to do and you'll believe him because he has the evidence and knowledge to back up what he's saying. I can't even express to you how thrilled you will be that you were lucky enough to stumble upon this company.
If you have dreams of making your company hugely successful and are prepared to put in the hard work, then Rupert Rodney is what you need. If you are passionate about what you do and are looking for someone who is inherently brilliant at marketing who will help you to find a voice and a market for your passion, then Rupert Rodney is what you need. Finally, if you want to work with a marketing strategist who is HUGELY passionate about what he does, is dedicated to your business' success, is 100% honest, incredibly knowledgeable about finance, business and marketing strategies and goes above and beyond anything you could possibly imagine for your business, then don't even bother looking anywhere else.
What I got from Alexander was not what I naively set out for, but it was exactly what I needed to make my business thrive and dominate! If you're reading this then you are obviously considering hiring this firm. Don't waste any more time looking at other proposals because you'll be doing your business a HUGE injustice.”

Working with Alexander will create magic.
“I’ve been a very tactical type of individual all my life when it comes to approaching tasks and projects. I work hard at it. Giving it my best to produce the most outstanding work possible. I knew a shift in strategic way of working and thinking was needed. Working with Alexander Michael Gittens as the strategist has changed that. It is the most valuable investment that we as a company have made. On an individual level, I have been infected by his uncanny positive energy to work towards excellence and find ways to impact people even more.
Without a shadow of a doubt after the first interview session, working with Alexander will create magic. As I progressed meeting after meeting, discussion after discussion, every dark room in my head was turned on, one room at a time. It became clear. Each dark room that was brightened up was full of ideas and dots were connected. What I thought was the problem we needed to be fixed was completely invalidated. Alexander has made me think of better ways beyond just fixing our brand story and brand positioning for the company. Alexander taught me the true meaning of value.
When we became better students, Alexander gave it his all. There is still a lot of work ahead. Working together with Alexander, we are becoming unstoppable. It has been a pleasure. Looking forward to the future. Together.”
Alexander does not give you a one-size-fits-all approach to strategy. He digs deep into your business and figures out what the best approach is for your business.

Alexander has a very structured approach and is extremely experienced. I enjoyed being guided through the process to better understand myself, and clearly articulate my vision, brand structure and thereby marketing strategy.
The scope of our project changed and expanded as we spoke, owing to the long history of our company and larger group. Excited with the results we were achieving, I would have been happy to end the project at various points during the contract. However, like any great artist, we only drew the curtains once he was satisfied that the project was a masterpiece, worthy of his talents. I look forward to many more projects together.”

Shopp!ng is a multinational business cooperative between government, NGO and private enterprises. The altruistic and commercial goal of the platform is to empower entrepreneurs to profitably leverage the power of the Internet to target previously inaccessible parts of the world.
The premise of Shopp!ng was clear and exciting, but the strategic structure of the company was suboptimal. Global pre-launch sales were already underway; however, confusion about the structure and the role of intermediaries was plaguing the billion-dollar potential of the business.

"Every once in a while, you cross paths with someone who has a massive impact on your life. Alexander is such a person. He reconciled me with the business world, guiding me to a place where I could connect with the authenticity and value that I really wanted to portray. Working with him on my business strategy was much more than just 'working' on a 'strategy'. He revived the believer in me. He showed me that you can (and must) run a business successfully while not only staying true to your values but also digging deep into them to draw precious energy, ideas and resources from them; resources you can transpose and transmit to your customer in order to give them the absolute best that you have to offer. While his skills are exceptional, it’s his engagement and desire to guide you beyond your own wildest dreams that makes the encounter with Alexander a truly precious gift. His artistic and poetic contributions to the process give it life, emotion and a creative dimension that are incredibly inspiring.
It has been a great pleasure, a lot of fun, and a massive learning curve working with him.

Alexander has done a masterful job of planning the strategy of my business.
“Alexander has done a masterful job of planning the strategy of my business. Up to this point, I have employed several other’s efforts to advance my business but never felt as if any one person had the 10,000-foot vision of my business and industry.

By the end of the project, I did receive that warm fuzzy feeling that the correct person systematically evaluated every aspect of my business and my industry.
