Pickle's Challenge

Whether its Greta Thunberg, or Aneeshwar Kunchala, children are increasingly the most motivational voice in the sustainability community. And for good reason. Free of the baggage that slows the rest of us down, they both expect change and are the ones most impacted, if we don’t.  

Pickle, our Founder’s daughter, is the reason why Pickle Consulting exists. She challenges us to make marketing a force for good, leaving behind the baggage that makes it so harmful and doing it for her future. 

Pickle's Question

“Daddy, is your job good for the environment?
My daughter didn’t earn her nickname, Pickle, by being quiet and sheepish. Timed to land at the end of a conference call with an an automative client, it was a question loaded with all the hope, humour and honesty that a 11yr old can muster. There was only one answer, no. 
I’ve set out to change that answer to a, yes. I sort to understand what was (is) bad about marketing, what’s good about it (lots) and how I can help companies make marketing a force for good in their organisations.
