What an expert says …. “What makes pitches so hard, particularly when the brief from the client is not comprehensive, and when the turnaround time is fast, is that the agency is operating in a vacuum. They are also usually operating in a new category. So the really difficult thing is getting to understand the category, and understanding the consumer within that category, quickly enough in order to inform the strategy and creative development. WhyFive's PitchPerfect sounds like it provides these critical insights, quickly, at times that really count” Gillian Rightford AdTherapy
What the agencies say …. “The WhyFive team are super smart, proactive, generous with support service and of course owners of hugely innovative insights to help support new business pitches across all sectors - we highly recommend them” Media Agency – Managing Director Johannesburg “PitchPerfect is ingenious!
