who, what, where


The Brandling is a learning company based in Nairobi. We exist to democratise branding knowledge and build brand thinking skills in order to advance ideas for social and environmental change.


We develop tools, training formats and tribes to build stronger brands for change. We create our own high quality learning products in formats and at cost points that make them accessible to all, and bespoke learning experiences for organisations looking to build brand thinking capability with a particular group of people.

Our revenue generating activities (like sales of tool licenses, book sales, training fees, brand consultancy and custom educational projects) support our ongoing research and development, free events, community management and scholarships for trainers in low income countries. By commissioning us for assignments and respecting the terms and conditions of our licenses you directly contribute to our efforts to create a better world through better brands for change. 


We have a core team which we expand with particular expertise to fit the challenge at hand, and the cultures where our services will be implemented.
