Who?

The world is one where established company and agency models crash against a media and consumer world fragmenting and evolving daily. It’s true – not all the best people work for your company. It’s also true that organisation structures & process don’t always get the best out of their people, or agencies, all the time. Maverick Planet was set up in 2005 by Mark Palmer to facilitate strategic change for businesses. If you are seeking rapid and tangible change it can help to have an outside view. That’s what Mark Palmer and the people he calls on inside and outside Maverick Planet do. The nature of its work and approach is diverse. Solutions cross over beyond expected boundaries and definitions. Which we think is a good thing for everyone.

Having started on UK clients, Maverick Planet has grown to work increasingly on a global scale. Maverick Planet has now worked in over a dozen countries. Probably the best endorsement of Maverick Planet’s work is that its growth is largely driven by client word of mouth recommendation.
