Activated Growth is an integrated, next-generation marketing agency focused on driving meaningful connections between companies and their audiences. Put simply, we create lasting solutions. How? By merging the best approaches in strategic planning, creativity, emotional insights and methodical execution.

Passion for helping business visions come to life is what lead Michele Leach to found Activated Growth in 2011, with the mission of helping companies achieve – even soar beyond – their business growth goals.

With our strategic methodology the focus is on activating results for our clients. To achieve these results we work closely with clients to understand their business and market drivers, unique value proposition, audiences and goals – and help them succeed by developing and executing audience-centric business and marketing strategies. We believe in consistent collaboration and transparency, and see ourselves as an extension of our clients’ organizations.

Our expertise covers the full spectrum of branding, consulting, marketing, advertising, public relations, websites and employee solutions. Many clients look to us to use the right combination of these services to drive effectiveness, build their brands and increase engagement – internally and externally.
