We sell at local markets, primarily Henley Farmers and through local shops. You can also find us at Caversham, Wallingford and Woodley Market, and other independent stockists in surrounding towns and villages.

Philip Booth Esq

Over the years, I have observed a market-wide decline in personal service provided to both vendors and buyers by estate agents. The sale of property has become too mercenary; the drive for market share is too prevalent and personal service has been lost.

My clients have told me that they have valued the personal attention and professional advice that I have given them, during such a complex and often stressful process.
In my view, your estate agent should be a trusted adviser, in the same way you have a relationship with your Lawyer, Dentist, Doctor or Accountant.

Your estate agent should help you obtain the best value for your property, facilitate the purchase of your next family home and mitigate the risk for you when undertaking a large investment. Why would you trust that to someone with whom you don’t have a relationship?

Point Blanc provide project, process and operations management to organisations who are looking to improve the way they deliver their client experience with process and solutions that get right to the point.

What does that mean in practice? For some organisations they feel some pain in the way their processes are used by their employees to deliver their service or product to their customers, or their growth trajectory has not allowed them the time to step back and look at how to deliver an improved customer experience. We can help those organisations by looking at where the pain points are in the process, identify why the pain points are and what a more effective process can look like to help take that pain away.

We also manage projects on behalf of organisations, either internally or for their clients, when they don’t have the capacity or expertise within the business.

Rocket Science

We are a full-service digital marketing agency specialising in working with SMBs and startups. We tie all the digital pieces together so you can focus on getting the day job done.

We understand your time is precious and stretched thin. You want your business to grow and attract new customers. But you’re so busy doing the job, you don’t have time for the marketing to make it grow.

Or maybe you’ve heard your business needs to ‘go digital’ but you don’t know where to start. Your area of expertise is doing what you do best, not managing social media or brushing up the website.

If you need something big like a full digital strategy or a new website, we can help. Equally, if you just need a hand posting on social media, we’re there for you. We even delve into the dark arts of paid social media ads, PPC (Google Adwords), and user experience. We think of ourselves as part of your business and your success is our success.

Strangebrew

To put it bluntly, I am on a mission to eradicate the bland by helping my Clients to ‘Think Brand – not bland’ in order to help them to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons. In my book, there is just far too much bland out there.

Whatever business you are in, there is simply no point in being bland, in just jumping on the blandwagon and blanding in with the competition – no value at all in becoming lost and perhaps drowning in a sea of sameness and running the risk of becoming the bland that time forgot.

My Clients benefit from my blend of 14 years hands-on brand marketing experience on the Client side combined with my 25 years plus on the branding consultancy side. Now trading as Strangebrew from my base in Berkshire rather than from London as I did previously, I still offer London quality but nowadays at what I call Glasgow prices*.

If you are ready to throw away the bland manual and to ‘Think Brand – not bland’ in order to stand out from the crowd in your market, give me a call and let’s meet up over a brew of tea, coffee or, better still, a pint of real ale.

Just do it, because you’re worth it – and find out just how reassuringly inexpensive working with the Business and Brand Alchemist at Strangebrew can be. Call me now on 07770 753 975

* I was born and bred in Glasgow!

At Thompson and Terry, our main source of commercial revenue is through referrals. For example, 100% of the vacancies that we recruited for last year were achieved through recommendation and repeat business. We believe that the strong, long-term relationships that we have with our clients is key to our success.
