Recommendations and Recognition

We don’t create work for accolades and awards…But it is nice to get some kudos and an “atta boy/girl” here and there…


Over 150+ years, our company has grown into a global business that I don’t think our founder could have ever imagined. How do you define such a business and prepare it for future global growth? You hire Brand Verbalist. Michelle helped us refine our Brand Strategy and Brand Identity to incorporate 150 years of heritage while taking into account the challenges of today and the potential of tomorrow. This work has been incorporated into everything we do now and is the foundation of where we are going. If you need a strategic and creative partner to help your brand, call Michelle at Brand Verbalist.
Greg Palese, Vice-President Marketing - Klein Tools
Michelle is a highly intelligent, skilled brand strategist. She combines both big picture thinking with a process-oriented focus to her work and is a self-directed problem-solver. She is also a wonderful people person, with an easy demeanor that engages both colleagues and clients.
Leigh (Jackman) Bachman, Independent Senior-Level Consultant, Brand Strategy
Brand Verbalist was instrumental in helping us orchestrate a brand strategy to enter a new channel in Europe and expand on a successful US / Canadian product launch. The insights and brand expertise they brought to Char-Broil helped to shape a critical market entry required to execute Char-Broil’s long-term growth strategy.

Michelle is a marketing partner who races up the learning curve and offers creative solutions to sticky marketing challenges. If you’re looking for a smart, savvy, skilled professional who listens to clients and is singularly focused on delivering executable and cost-effective solutions, I’d like to offer my highest professional recommendation for Michelle at Brand Verbalist.

Michelle G. Zeller , Vice-President, Marketing, Char-Broil
Brand Verbalist is my favorite kind of client. They treated me like a research partner, rather than a research “supplier.” Not only did their collaborative approach contribute to a successful outcome, but it also made the entire process enjoyable. One would never have guessed that it was our first time working together. I hope to have more opportunities to work with Michelle and Brand Verbalist.
