Turning challenges into change— together.

We're not your typical consultancy.

We're not into "efficiency optimization" of processes – we come into play when more is at stake: A clear purpose, the answer to the "why" and "what for" question. Sustainability and new, better growth demand for more than "business as usual, just a little bit better". They ask for resilience, not efficiency. 

We're not an
agency.

We're not creating any advertising campaigns, we're not defining media plans and are not developing social media strategies. We're operating "at the heart of the brand and organization" – its identity, its core values, why they exist and what they stand for—
today & tomorrow. 

We are KORE.

Kore Icon

We re-think the basics in a new way and together with you shape & create the future of your brand/your organization. We focus on and promote clarity, orientation & resilience, not efficiency. 
Our intention is to – together – enable & create sustainable value and real impact. Simply stated: Making a real difference. What comes out in the end should be greater than pure numbers. Interested?

KORE is based on the English "core" and stands figuratively for the "core", the "inside" and the "most essential" of a brand or organization. With this, we want to express that we, as your partner, focus on what really makes the decisive difference: An authentic, lived purpose to which everything else is oriented. This is how you achieve clarity and ultimately success.

Our proven approach —
always together.

We always start with the question: WHY?  Evaluating the PURPOSE of a brand or organization in its relevant context. The answer is the foundation of our consultancy approach on which everything is being developed on.

The answer reveals what a brand or an organization is really standing for. What drives it from the core. What defines its trustability and authenticity towards employees, partners, customers and other stakeholders. And what therefore defines its relevance and attractiveness. 

The answer to the "WHY" question creates clarity and orientation.

For all involved.

For the right strategies.

For consequent decisions.

For responsible action.

For innovative, authentic products, services and business models.

For a unique positioning.

For brand appeal.

For identification with what the brand, the organization are standing for.

For impact at scale.

And therefore, for a better, sustainable future. 

Together we're leveraging a holistic, integrated process to get to the WHY and WHAT FOR of your brand and/or organization. WHAT are we standing FOR and WHY do others benefit from that?

The resulting derived unique identity, the clear positioning, your values & the relevant benefits for others are the foundation, the core for a sustainable future, organizational resilience and lasting business success. 

And enable real, guiding substance in form of a holistic purpose perspective of the brand and organization. Clarity and orientation are leading to effect and real contribution; are providing the guidelines for the WHAT and HOW. And are serving as a compass to you for your brand and organizational evolution. 

To enable a better, purpose based future.

Purpose-based brand & organizational evolution – creating CLARITY & providing ORIENTATION
