brand strategy, marketing communications & FORESIGHT 

SURGE is the sub-brand through which I operate individually as well as with a collective of hyper talented specialists aiming at  maximising brand value for organisations of all shapes and sizes. 

Sergio worked with our organisation during a challenging and complex time when we needed to shift our internal culture, brand narrative, segmentation and, re-position and relaunch in the market place. Sergio went above and beyond to ensure we had the necessary tools and support to implement our strategic direction, re-energising our brand for the years to come.

Stories surge up out of nowhere, and if they feel compelling, you follow them. You let them unfold inside you and see where they are going to lead.

Brands are stories.

Narratives adding intangible value to otherwise inanimate commodities.

Yet, the  commercial context is one that requires such stories to surge by design and not by default.

At SURGE we live and breathe the creative oxygen of culture, technology and human interactions allowing us to plan and execute for sustained momentum. Like the beating of our hearts, relevant brands pulse with energy, capturing people's attention, leaving lasting memories and guiding their purchase decisions. 

With our clients we co-author the chapters between telling and doing , wishing and achieving and enable them to surge to new possibilities.
