Tiger Mouth understandingWe make it easier for you to do business

Clear, concise and creative communications helps your audiences to understand you better.  Better understanding of who you are, what you do, why you do it, and how you achieve it breaks down barriers and makes doing business that much easier.

Tiger Mouth navigating digital mazeWe help you navigate the digital maze

The digital revolution has undoubtedly changed how we communicate.  Every day I meet people from organisations large and small, trying to fathom how they can use the latest social media tools to their best advantage.  Is it right for them?  Or should they stick with traditional marketing methods?  Who can they trust to guide them through the maze?

Christine Jones 1A little about me

I’m Christine Jones, the founder of Tiger Mouth, and my passion is to strategically use communications to help people and organisations reach their business goals.

I’ve been a marketer for 20 years and have touched just about every aspect of the communications spectrum including public relations, crisis management, investor relations, public affairs, event management, marketing services, digital strategy, branding and personal branding, design, and over past six years social media.  I’ve worked internationally and at the highest corporate communications level.

When I developed Tiger Mouth I brought together the areas of my expertise that I enjoy the most and have the most value to my clients, and combined them with the skills other top professionals (you’ll meet them below), to create a business that people want on their team.

Regardless of whether you’re the CEO of a corporate organisation, the marketing director for a medium-sized enterprise or a budding entrepreneur we can help.  Our approach is to take the time to really understand what you want to achieve.  We’ll then give you our advice on what is the best course of action, deliver it, and, where appropriate, measure it for you.

StorytellingWhat do we do?

Principally, we tell stories.  Stories that will emotionally engage the people you want to reach, and we tell them through the medium(s) that are best suited to you.  That could be video, it’s likely to be one or several social media platforms, it could be a website/portal/blog, heck it could even be as ‘old fashioned’ as a brochure or a leaflet.  Everyone and every project is unique, and we treat you like an individual.  We don’t have off-the-shelf solutions.  We listen to you and go from there.

Our values 

ValuesWe have four values that guide everything we do.  Here’s what you can expect when you work with us:

  1. Client experience first – delivering successful projects is just part of the story. We want to create memorable client experiences, the intangible stuff that lets you know we’re on your side.
  2. Excellence – just good enough, isn’t good enough; we aim to bring you lots of nice surprises along our journey together.
  3. One direction – we work hard to get everyone working collaboratively and keep them focused on the goal – your project success.
  4. Decency – we will tell you as it is. If we think your idea stinks, brace yourself we’ll tell you, but will try to find a better way.  If we think we’re not the right fit for your project, then we’ll bow out gracefully.  We always strive to do the right thing for our clients, team, partners, community, and the environment.

JasperJasper the tiger, our mascot

Jasper is the tiger who we adopt for everyone that becomes a customer, and a cuddly toy version of him sits on their desks.  Jasper weighed just 3kg and was only a month old when he was confiscated from smugglers in Cambodia, after his mother was killed.  He now lives in a large natural habitat, funded by the charity Care for the Wild, and after many health issues, is now a very fit and healthy tiger.  He spends much of his day cooling off in the large pool and prowling through the thick vegetation in his enclosure.  The rest of the Tiger Mouth team aren’t jealous at-all! Find out more about our tiger adoptions here.

We also work with a range of talented freelancers in the areas of photography, filming, copywriting, web and app builders, and design.
