Challenge the status quo
The world is changing. There is a shift in personal, social and commercial values happening and much about our traditional way of doing business isn’t working. If you want different results, you have to be prepared to do things differently.
Connect people & ideas
We can’t help ourselves! It’s just what we do. We connect great people with each other and with ideas and information that are of use and interest. It makes us feel great and helps other people grow, succeed and build their networks. Be generous and everyone wins!
Keep it real – no bullsh*t
There’s no smoke and mirrors with Blacksmith. What you see is what you get. We won’t keep you in the dark, put up a front, spin you a line or spout bullsh*t just to keep you or ourselves happy. We like to keep things practical, simple and real.
Start a movement
We ARE a movement! Blacksmith is a collection of committed people who are out to change the world for the better. We work with our clients to turn each of their businesses into a purpose led movement on a mission to make a positive difference – for their people, customers, investors and communities.
Tell a story
We are stories. Each of us is the sum of the stories we tell ourselves about our lives. As organisations and societies the same is true. Stories build cultures, share beliefs and learning, as well as being entertaining and fun. Storytelling is a core part of our practice and way of doing business. We love a good story!
Use your powers for good
We all have the ability to do more good in the world. At Blacksmith, we believe that every business has a significant opportunity to ‘use its powers for good’ and make a positive difference to the world, just by doing what they do in a more conscious way. We walk the talk through our Business of Giving program, pro bono work and community involvement.
