Enabling Audience Network’s strategic partner managers to engage consultatively, and develop effective advisory relationships with senior stakeholders.


“SBR engaged quickly and effectively with our global team to align with our current state to provide a pragmatic solution to reach our desired future state . They worked in partnership with us using the insight from stakeholder interviews and the review of our assets to create and facilitate a programme that was tailored to the needs of business at a time when the industry was going through significant operational changes.

Throughout the global roll out of the programme the team were continuously engaged in feedback loops with us to ensure the content was tailored, relevant and enable the global participants. As an internal consultant, what I really appreciated about SBR’s approach was their flexibility and their willingness to understand the business at a deeper level. This was reflected in the feedback received from participants at all levels who called out that they were able to apply the frameworks with ease since the context and scenarios resonated with them.

As a result of the programme, we identified behaviour changes throughout the team that are translating into positive business impact globally. As a project, we have exceeded our expectations in terms of objectives and I couldn’t thank or recommended SBR enough.”

This required the business to continue to hone the confidence and capability of their SPMs to be a proactive trusted advisor to their publishers in order to help them thrive in change.
