Branthem is a multi-award winning boutique agency, specialising in Authentic Brand Engagement. Our key focus is to bridge the connective gap between Brand to Customer - and Brand to Employees.

We do this by harnessing the emotive power of music to create and amplify brand messages that are more relevant and real to those people a brand values most.

The clients who engage our services are brand focussed forward thinkers, with a long term vision to grow in reputation as leaders in their industry. They want to be seen and heard above the noise and emptiness of traditional sales marketing and they want to build real, long term customers as well as have a great team of people working alongside them.

Why we do it

The thing with brand engagement is that it's really easy to get lost in the whole creating a great campaign that you forget who you're actually trying to reach.

At Branthem, we believe authentic brand engagement is not about us - or you. It's about who you're actually trying to connect with - and that is your audience.


Whether you are trying to get more customers, or find new ways to keep your staff motivated and energised, the right message can help you not only connect deeply with you audience now, but for life.
