Well hello there

We’re the first to admit that the BrandPointZero name might be new to you but, between us, we’ve racked up some pretty impressive experience. We’re a fabulous collective of old and new, quite literally. We’ve worked on some fantastic projects, from developing employer brand and communications strategies to helping organisations to attract and retain the very best talent… and collected our fair share* of industry awards too. You might even have met a few of us along the way. If you’ve yet to have that *ahem* pleasure, here’s a bit more about us and also some of our trusted partners.

*A quite generous fair share if we’re honest.

Andy Bamford

Andy Bamford

I hate writing bios. I started an employer marketing agency in Bristol, many years ago, with the help of a few friends. Over the years we got a bit better at what we did until we woke up one morning and we were the largest independently owned agency in our sector. We sold that business in 2015, and I stayed on as Chief Executive for 3 years – before leaving to put my feet up. That didn’t last long, as I was getting a bit bored and I was really excited by the prospect of working again.

I’ve got quite a few grey hairs, lots of stories and a view on where our market’s going, which I’d be more than happy to share over lunch, dinner or just a chat. Whatever takes your fancy.

Having worked in brand, marketing and communications agencies in Bristol and London for over 25 years (I don’t look that old, you say? Why, thank you)…I’ve been lucky enough to get close to some great brands and forward-thinking organisations. Ones who are on transformational journeys, like AXA (globally) and Inspired Villages (a little closer to home). Right now, I’m excited by what the future holds. The world of work is changing dramatically, and I’m really looking forward to being part of it.

Adam Lane

Adam Lane

I’ve been working in marketing and communications for over ten years. It all started because of a hole in one…isn’t it strange how these things come about? Since then I’ve worked with clients across a variety of sectors. I’ve been lucky enough to work with AXA to reposition them as an employer in the UK and more recently, I’ve worked with some fantastic people at LV= to creatively articulate their employer brand. Working with passionate people on interesting and challenging briefs is what drives me. That, good coffee and the odd glass of wine (not together, obvs).

Charlotte Evans

Charlotte Evans

Hello, I’m Charlotte – Chief Office Brownie Maker, oh, and Client Partner here at BrandPointZero. I started my career riding rollercoasters. And what a (metaphorical) rollercoaster it’s been. Eight years on, I’ve delivered projects (and results) for big brands such as LEGOLAND, Shell, Virgin Media and Hyundai.

It all starts with a good brief and a good spreadsheet. If you’ve not got a brief but do have a goal, that’s okay too  – we’ll get through it together.

Andrew Gibson

Andrew Gibson

As a child I wanted to nothing more than to play sport for my country or illustrate comic books, needless to say neither came true. However, I found a career that paid me to make things look nice and allowed me to travel the world, perfect.
A lover of brands, I’ve worked with lots over last 20+ years, Sky, Formula-E and Shell to name a few. Bringing their stories to life has been, and always will be a job, but I like it, a lot.
Megan Baldwin

Megan Baldwin

Hi, I’m Meg and I’ve worked for agencies and specialised in internal comms for the past few years. I’ve been lucky enough to work with and learn from some extremely talented, lovely people along the way. You can think of me as a safe pair of hands when it comes to managing projects (or a bossy control freak), but I’m passionate about making trusted and strong relationships with my clients and colleagues alike and that’s what makes my job so enjoyable.

When I’m not managing projects, you’ll find me on a beach or up a mountain. Failing that, you’ll find me in the pub or on a dance floor, feel free to reach out!

Heidi Stephens

Heidi Stephens

I’ve been working in marketing for over 20 years, as both a senior strategist and a copywriter. Over the years I’ve worked on everything from sex toys and saucepans to cars and cruise ships*.

I’m really good at picking apart client briefs to find the insight and the opportunity that spark great creative thinking, then writing the words that inspire meaningful connections between brands and their employees. It’s a great job made considerably easier by the support of a brilliant team, and our clients aren’t bad either.

*Just to be clear, I’ve worked on cruise ship marketing and employee engagement, I’ve never actually worked on a cruise ship. Maybe one day.

Georgia Wilkinson

Georgia Wilkinson

Whilst travelling, I’m not sure if it was my love of itineraries or meticulous planning that gave me away but someone said I’d make a great account/project manager and here I am today. From big, chunky briefs with multiple deliverables to strategic projects that need a small army to work them through I’ll be your trusted partner that organises it all, ensuring we deliver on time, to budget and exceed your expectations. Throw into the mix my love of all things internal comms, employee engagement and branding and that’s how I landed here at the lovely BrandPointZero.

And when I’m not spinning many plates at work, I’ll be eating my way through all the amazing restaurants in Bristol or persuading my friends to come to a disco night with me!

Angie Holden

Angie Holden

Angie has been making the numbers add up for businesses large and small for most of her career. She’s here to keep us all on the straight and narrow. She’ll look after everything to do with finance, including making sure we get paid…and that we pay others on time too.

When she’s not tapping away on her calculator, she’s a mum of four, who all keep her on her toes and she manages her very own big house in the country…it’s a Blur song reference for those of you younger than 30.

Jack Cruwys-Finnigan

Jack Cruwys-Finnigan

Hi, I’m Jack – a graphic designer and art director. Over the years I have discovered a love for the more conceptual side of design and relish working in ‘campaign world’. I’ve previously worked with clients such as Lloyds Banking Group, Castrol, UWE Bristol and S&P Global Platts. We spend about a third of our lives at work, so anything I can do to make that a better place for people is a win for me.

Outside of work, I spend a lot (like a-lot) of time on my bike, a hobby I couldn’t live without. If I’m not cycling, chances are I’m persevering with some DIY as my partner and I are currently renovating our second project house. I love a challenge.

"When I think about the points in my life where I’ve tackled various combinations of career, motherhood and ageing parents, it makes me think about everyone who made it possible. 

I’ve had three careers and four children, and I owe such a debt of gratitude to the women in my life who have offered support, inspiration and a helping hand. 

The past year has shown us all that life can be messy, but also that we are resourceful and resilient. If you’ve had a helping hand from great women in your life, make 2021 the year you pass it forward. "

1. An eye roll is not enough - don’t be a bystander. Speak up and speak out!

2. You can never know enough – challenge yourself as much as others, and never stop asking questions.

3. Not everyone is able to openly challenge without experiencing repercussions – if you have privilege, make the most of it!

It’s demonstrated how flexible and resilient we all are, and what we can achieve with the right support and a bucket of determination. Keep smashing it ladies, the best is yet to come!

As part of our #iwd series, Charlotte Evans talks As part of our #iwd series, Charlotte Evans talks about why it’s time to back yourself.
 
The confidence gap at work is an issue that lots of us have experienced - women are more likely to underestimate their performance, and men more likely to do the opposite. If this sounds like you, here are 3 things you can do about it.
 
1. Know your own worth and the value you bring to an organisation. Take note of positive feedback and analyse your strengths.

2. Make sure others know your value. Don’t be afraid to say ‘I’m the best person for that task’.

3. Request or find a mentor. It’s proven that the confidence gap narrows as women gain experience, so learning from those who’ve done it before is key.

1. Mentor female talent – the next generation needs champions and mentors to blaze the trail. It makes a HUGE difference.

2. Offer flexibility - lockdown has shown how women like me with caring responsibilities can step up with the right support.

3. Call out inequality - if you see it, #choosetochallenge. Speak up and speak out.

4. Change your perspective – 6 months of mat leave, or 6 months honing their organisation skills and focus under pressure?

5. Educate others - It’s easy to dismiss inequality from a position of privilege, we all do it. Keep talking, listening and sharing women’s experiences.
