About Hello Finch
Through Hello Finch, you’ll meet experts I trust and believe in. I’ve worked with some Hello Finch agencies for years, others for decades.
Over 25 years, I’ve learned that indies have to be better, leaner, smarter and more creative to even survive.
And over 25 years, myself and Hello Finch agencies have done some amazing things for the world’s biggest and brightest brands.
We are champions of entrepreneurial talent and support early stage businesses to thrive through smart thinking and a can do approach.
I’ve worked with a wide cross section of high street brands, developing their strategies, running their shops and transforming their customers’ experience. Over my career, I’ve always chosen to work with brilliant independents, unlocking the unsurpassed passion they bring to client briefs. Through Hello Finch, I provide every client with a personalised front door to a wonderful, eclectic team of specialists.
I founded Hello Finch with one key aim — to work with fabulous people to build brands that they could feel excited about. My approach is simple, how can we help your business grow? Since founding Hello Finch we've worked with a mix of leading high street businesses to early stage start-ups seeking seed financing and I've loved it. Every client is different and it's why I believe Hello Finch is the answer - your own bespoke team whatever the size of your project or business.
Working with Jemima and Hello Finch has been a brilliant learning experience.
