Responsible and sustainable commucations agency―

How it all began ―

Hanna: “What would you like to do if only sky was the limit? I mean, save the world, of course. But how precisely?”

Sinikka: “Hmm… I think I’d want to help people make more sustainable choices. Or, I’d like it if the world was built so that sustainability was an integral part of it.”

Hanna: “Yes! But such a change can’t depend on consumer choices. It has to start with organisations.”

Sinikka: “We are former journalists. How can we do our part? What are we good at?”

Hanna: “Well! We know how to communicate and write. We analyse, understand, develop insight, make new connections…”

Sinikka: “Indeed, we’re a very specific type of people that definitely has a multitude of uses in today’s world. But what to call it?”

The world is changing at an accelerating pace and its challenges are growing at such a rate that traditional communications are often not sufficient for an organisation to effectively stay on top of their game.

To do our part in helping today’s organisations meet these challenges, we founded Copywriting Generalists – a modern and responsible communications agency. We offer a new flavour to a traditional craft by combining marketing and communications with the orientation of a generalist; a person who is quick at developing insight on a multitude of different topics, a jack-of-all-trades – a fast deep-learner.

We passionately believe that companies and other agile organisations are in the best position to develop effective and disruptive solutions to alleviate today’s super-wicked problem that includes challenges with climate change, mass extinction, women’s rights, famine, pandemics and other health-related issues. We want change so the Earth could regain its balance and life everywhere on it would be humane and good.

Smart companies need smart communications ―

We believe that companies that want to drive change need communications that are based on both understanding business as well as understanding the human nature. We believe that transparency and authenticity will keep rising in importance. We believe in uniting behind shared values and allowing those values to shape strategy and operations. Partnerships between organisations that share common values create shared success. In the future, all productive business will be value based and responsible. In the future, all organisations will be smart and agile.

Every one of our customers is on a unique journey. Every organisation has started from somewhere and is heading towards something. Just as the world will never be complete, neither will an organisation (let alone an individual…!)

It is the nature of the world and useful to understand: there’s always room for improvement. Also, it’s never too late.

Are you already on your journey? Would you like to talk about it?
